TORONTO (AP) — Toronto FC acquired All-Star and Canadian international Dwayne De Rosario from the Houston Dynamo on Friday in exchange for defender Julius James and allocation money.

"Dwayne is a player we've admired for quite some time. When the chance came to work with Houston to get this deal, we were obviously very happy," Toronto director of soccer Mo Johnston said in a statement.

The 30-year-old Toronto native has 51 goals and 42 assists in his eight MLS seasons. He won the MLS Goal of the Year award twice, in 2004 and 2005, and was a finalist in 2006.
