Danish first division club Herfølge Boldklub Køge secured midfielder Noble Okello Ayo on a season long loan from Major Super League (MSL) side Toronto Football Club.
HB Koge announced that it had signed the towering 20 year midfielder and Canadian international Noble Okello on loan for the remainder of 2020.
Okello joins fellow Toronto loanee Rocco Romeo overseas for the remainder of 2020.
With the likes of Michael Bradley, Liam Fraser, Marky Delgado, Jonathan Osorio, and others ahead of the central midfielder in the depth chart, Okello appeared in just one MLS match to date (at the MLS is Back Tournament in July vs. the New England Revolution).
A native of Toronto, the 20 year old central midfielder had been linked with Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg in the past after a successful loan stint there as a 17 year old.
Since then, he has managed to make his way into John Herdman’s national side, but has struggled to progress with Toronto Football Club among a competitive first team.
