Toronto FC II announced Thursday that the club has acquired midfielder Luis Pereira on loan from 
Club Deportivo Árabe Unido (C.D. Árabe Unido). Pereira will be added to the roster upon receipt 
of his ITC, work permit and visa.

“Luis is an intelligent midfielder who covers a lot of ground defensively and adds depth to our 
roster,” said Toronto FC II Head Coach Jason Bent. “His range of experience will be an asset 
as we progress through the long USL season. We are pleased to get this deal finalized and integrate 
Luis into our group.”

Pereira, 21, most recently spent the past three seasons with CD Árabe Unido of the Liga Panameña 
de Fútbol and made a combined 91 appearances registering four goals in all competitions 
(league play and the CONCACAF Champions League). Pereira has earned one cap for the Panamanian 
national team. He made his debut with Panama on February 18, 2015 in a friendly match against 
the United States.
