Toronto FC adds USMNT intl. goalkeeper Sean Johnson through 2024
Toronto FC announced Friday the club has signed U.S. international goalkeeper Sean Johnson to a contract through 2024 using Targeted Allocation Money (TAM), bringing on the 33-year-old as a free agent after six years at New York City FC.
Johnson, who has featured in 13 seasons in MLS, is an MLS All-Star and MLS Cup winner, having secured the 2021 MLS Cup with NYCFC by defeating the Portland Timbers over penalties, where he made two key saves. For those heroics, Johnson was named MLS Cup MVP.
"Sean has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in MLS, given his club and international career," said Toronto FC head coach Bob Bradley. "Sean continues to demonstrate his elite shot-stopping ability, athleticism, and decision-making in important moments and the biggest games."
