He’s not a like-for-like replacement for the departed Sebastian Giovinco, but Toronto FC have signed former U.S. men’s national team forward Terrence Boyd, the club announced Tuesday.

The 27-year-old arrives via a transfer from SV Darmstadt 98 in Germany’s 2. Bundesliga and will be added to the roster upon receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC).

“We are excited to welcome Terrence and his family to the club. Terrence is a player that we’ve tracked for years during his time with the U.S. National Team and in Germany,” Toronto FC general manager Ali Curtis said in a statement. “He is an experienced, attacking player that is capable of scoring goals in MLS. We’re looking forward to him joining our preseason and integrating himself into the group.”

Boyd spent the last three seasons with SV Darmstadt 98 where he had five goals and two assists in 44 appearances. He began his career with Hertha BSC II in 2009 before signing with the Borussia Dortmund’s reserve squad three years later.

Boyd signed with Austrian club Rapid Wien ahead of the 2012 season and had 37 goals and 11 assists in 80 appearances in all competitions over the course of three years.

Rapid Wien sold him to RB Leipzig (Austria) in the summer of 2014 and remained with the club before joining Darmstadt in 2017. He had a pair of goals in seven appearances, missing half of the 2014-15 season after suffering a torn ACL in Dec. 2014.

Boyd has 14 caps for the USMNT, making his debut on February 29, 2012 in a friendly match against Italy. His last appearance came on October 11, 2016 against New Zealand.
