ORLANDO, Fla. -

Orlando City Soccer announced the signing of former D.C. United midfielder Austin Da Luz and former standout U23 midfielder Justin Toby to its roster Monday, pending USSF approval.

Toby and da Luz will join the Lions in their final USL PRO season.  Head Coach Adrian Heath is tooling with the roster for the club’s entry into Major League Soccer in 2015.

“We are preparing a squad that consists of players who we believe might make that jump with us,” Heath said in a news release.

Toby has spent time in the Orlando City pyramid system, playing for the Orlando City U23s in the Summer of 2012.

Austin da Luz is familiar with Heath’s system, playing for him while in Austin for the Aztex in 2008.
