    Even at the age of 30 Osorio has interest both in the EFL and abroad — with his main priority a crack at the English game.

    Osorio has signed up with American-based English agent Matt Higgins in a bid to test the market.

    The midfielder kicked off his professional career with Canadian Soccer League side SC Toronto in 2012.

    During his debut season he became one of the club’s top goalscorers and earned the CSL Rookie of the Year award.

    In 2013 he joined MLS side Totonto FC after training with the club’s academy.

    He has since scored 57 goals and assisted 34 in 318 appearances for the Reds.

    Toronto finished 13th in the MLS Eastern Conference last season – seven points above Wayne Rooney‘s DC United.

    Osorio recorded 13 goal contributions in 23 league games, making him one of Toronto’s most influential players.
