Blackburn Rovers defender Bradley Orr joins MLS franchise Toronto FC on an 11-month loan.

Blackburn Rovers defender Bradley Orr has become the latest player to move from England to the MLS.

The 31-year-old right-back has joined Toronto FC on an 11-month loan deal with a view to a permanent switch.

Toronto are managed by former Rovers captain Ryan Nelsen and the Canadian franchise recently agreed a deal to sign Tottenham Hotspur forward Jermain Defoe in February.

Orr has not featured for Rovers since April 2013. He spent four months on loan at Blackpool earlier this season.
