Toronto FC has sent midfielder Ager Aketxe on loan to Spanish club Cadiz CF.

The Major League Soccer club made the announcement Wednesday.

The 24-year-old Aketxe has one assist in 14 combined appearances in MLS league play and CONCACAF Champions League action this season.

Aketxe joined Toronto on Feb. 28 from Spanish club Athletic Bilbao.

"At this time, we feel it’s in the best interests of both parties to do this loan," Toronto general manager Tim Bezbatchenko said in a release. "Adjusting to MLS is different for everyone and Champions League added a new element in this particular situation compared to a standard pre-season. We wish him the best during the loan."
