Carlisle wrote that Toronto FC has expressed interest in Boyd, who wouldn’t be subject to the allocation order. If Boyd joins the Canadian side, he would be teammates with four players who have appeared for the USMNT in the past two years: Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore, Alex Bono, and Marky Delgado.
Boyd has played a total of just 157 minutes this season for his current club, 2.Bundesliga side SV Darmstadt 98. The club has been in poor form, sitting 13th in the 18 team league. Boyd joined Darmstadt in 2017, but has struggled to break into the Starting XI. The 27-year-old has scored five goals in 30 league appearances.
His career has been hampered by knee injuries, which caused him to miss nearly the entire 2014/2015 season. However, he has been relatively injury-free since the start of the 2016/2017 season.
Boyd has made 14 appearances for the USMNT and contributed two assists, but no goals. His last appearance for the U.S. was a two minute cameo off the bench, in a 2016 friendly against New Zealand.
