Forward David (Junior) Hoilett, a native of Brampton, Ont., and his younger brother Jaineil, who plays in Gemany, are training temporarily with the MLS team before returning to their respective clubs training camp in Europe.

Hes also eligible for Jamaica and has reportedly said he would consider England if he met the requirements.

A polite Hoilett had little to say to reporters but spoke admiringly about Torontos practice facility ("Better than our facility back at QPR"), training and players, and said he was committed to helping QPR fight its way back to Englands top tier following relegation. "It was a difficult season, of course," he said. "We underperformed and its been a tough season. But were going to try to fight hard and get back in the Premier League where we belong."

He had tweeted on the weekend that QPR wanted to end his loan spell so he would be "refreshed" for pre-season. "Toronto it has been a pleasure - unbelievable people and treated me so well .muchlove," he tweeted.

He saw action in 11 matches, starting nine. Toronto (1-7-5), winless in 11 league games, has the weekend off before visiting D.C. United (1-10-2) on June 15. OLeary, like other members of the coaching staff, was nothing but positive Tuesday despite the recent run. Torontos most recent result was a disappointing 1-1 tie with the visiting Philadelphia Union, thanks to a goal conceded in second-half stoppage time. "What do you do when youre in a difficult spell?" OLeary asked. "You just keep your head down, you keep working. "I think (from) the response of the fans, thats what they saw. They saw a team that was vibrant, was fighting for them, was fighting for Toronto FC. And I think well keep doing that and results will turn here. "Well add a little more quality. ... This thing will turn. Were a competitive team now. Well start turning these performances into points sooner than later." Striker Danny Koevermans and midfielder Terry Dunfield are both expected to play for the Toronto reserve side on Friday night in Pittsburgh against the Riverhounds, a USL Pro team. Koevermans, who was sidelined by knee surgery, got his first taste of first-team action in more than 10 months Saturday when the Dutch star came on as a substitute in the 86th minute against Philadelphia. Dunfield, meanwhile, is back after suffering a hyperextended knee. Notes: OLeary said it was too early to say how much action Koevermans would see at D.C. United. ...
