MLS New Ball

Orlando completes Nocerino signing: It took some finagling, but Orlando City was able to sign their transfer target Antonio Nocerino from AC Milan. The Lions reached a deal to acquire his discovery rights from DC United, and reunited the 30-year-old Italian midfielder with his former teammate Kaka. Nocerino will be a designated player for Orlando, filling up their third and final DP slot.

TFC extend BMO rights deal: The Bank of Montreal, better known as BMO, has reached a 10-year deal for the naming rights to what will remain BMO Field. In addition to Toronto FC, BMO Field will now host the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League. In addition, BMO will continue to appear on TFC’s kits for the 2016 season.

Howard seeks big money to join Colorado: From the “take it with a grain of salt” files, the Sun in England reports Tim Howard is seeking a four year, $20 million move to join the Colorado Rapids. He recently lost his position as the incumbant starting goalkeeper at Everton and has been connected to a Rapids move for months now.

And another one: On the heels of Obafemi Martins move to the Chinese Super League, Ives Galarcep of Goal.com says you can expect another MLS star on the move to China soon — that from the mouth of Don Garber.
