TORONTO (AP) Toronto FC has acquired defender Justin Morrow from the San Jose Earthquakes for allocation money.

The move beefs up Toronto's backline, with Morrow able to play fullback and center back. In four years with the Earthquakes, the 26-year-old American has played in 71 games with 63 starts.

Morrow started for the U.S. last January when the U.S. and Canada played to a 0-0 draw in an exhibition game.

San Jose selected Morrow in the second round of the 2010 MLS SuperDraft.
