Transfer window: Blackburn's Bradley Orr joins Toronto

Blackburn Rovers have confirmed Bradley Orr has joined Major League Soccer side Toronto on loan until December, with a view to making a permanent move.

Defender Orr will join England striker Jermain Defoe and USA international Michael Bradley at the Canadian side.

Toronto are managed by former Blackburn centre-back Ryan Nelsen.

Orr, 31, who has not featured for Gary Bowyer's side this season, spent three months on loan at Blackpool, playing four times for the Seasiders.

The ex-Bristol City and QPR man was signed by Steve Kean in January 2012 and has made a total of 34 appearances for the Lancashire club.
