Toronto FC is saying goodbye to two goalkeepers and more as the rebuild continues

Toronto FC began pruning its roster on Friday after a second straight disappointing season, saying goodbye to goalkeepers Alex Bono and Quentin Westberg, defender Donnell Henry, midfielder Noble Okello and forward Afonyachi Achara.

TFC also rejected a contract option on veteran center Chris Mawenga but said it remains in talks over a potential new deal. The club also said it is in talks with midfielder Jonathan Osorio, whose contract expires at the end of the year.

Toronto exercised the contract option on defenseman Timmy Antonello while declining the option on Achara.

Bono, Westberg and Okello are also out of contract at the end of the year. Henry remains under contract with the league after Los Angeles FC waived him in July and the Canada international will go through waivers again.

There are currently 21 TFC players guaranteed under contract for the 2023 season.

Fullback Richie Laria’s loan from England’s Nottingham Forest runs until June 2023. Winger Jacob Schaffelberg is on loan with Nashville SC until the end of the 2022 season, with an option for Nashville to make the move permanent.

Toronto has until November 14 to exercise a 2023 contract option for the Brazilian full-back, currently on loan to Santos FC in Brazil.
