US Men’s National Team midfielder Michael Bradley is on the verge of joining Toronto FC, according to reports today in the US media.
Bradley, who has been tipped with moves to Tottenham, Fulham and Sunderland, could be surplus to requirements at AS Roma after the Serie A club signed midfielder Radja Nainggolan yesterday. Bradley has made 11 league appearances this season, but he will have a fight on his hands to keep a starting spot on the Roma team if he stays at the club.
After a report in the British media earlier today indicated that Tottenham Hotspur could be interested in the American creative midfielder, ESPN FC analyst Taylor Twellman reported that Bradley could be heading to MLS club Toronto FC.

And to substantiate what Twellman reported, his ESPN FC colleague Alexi Lalas also confirmed the news after speaking with a source.

Toronto FC, meanwhile, are reporting that they’ll announce a transfer signing on January 13 that, according to reports in the Canadian press, will be Jermain Defoe.
Since the video is titled “Part 1” below, could Defoe be part 1 and Bradley be part 2? We shall see.
