Ephraim, 24, has made three appearances since making the move in February to link up with former Rangers team-mate Ryan Nelsen who is now managing Toronto.

"I did not know a lot about Major League Soccer [before joining Toronto FC]. I spoke with the manager [Ryan Nelsen], who I obviously played with at Queens Park Rangers, and he had very positive things to say about it," Ephraim told MLSsoccer.com.

"Since I have been over here I have found everything to be very good, from the facilities to the coaches to the medical staff to the quality of football. Everything has been top-class and hopefully that continues.

"It's a good standard. I didn't know what to expect coming out here. I didn't think it was going to be easy and I knew it was going to be a tough standard. I just didn't know what style it would be. I've been impressed so far."
