Toronto FC will have a different look next season as the team announced Thursday that they have decided not to pick up the team options on striker Pablo Vitti, midfielder Amado Guevara and defender Lesly Fellinga.

"After sitting with Preki, and the rest of the coaching staff, we have decided this is the direction the club would like to go," said director of soccer Mo Johnston in a statement. "This leaves all players free to negotiate new deals with other clubs outside of MLS. We wish them all the best of luck in the future."

One of the better playmakers and dead-ball specialists in the MLS, Guevara lead TFC with six assists last season and finished second on the team with five goals.  The Honduran international will represent his country at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.  Guevara was named the MLS MVP in 2004 however he had a falling out with current TFC coach Preki when the two worked together at Chivas USA.  According to several reports, Guevara has signed with Honduran club Motagua.

After being acquired on a loan deal from Indipendiente of the Argenine league, Vitti struggled in his only season in the MLS, scoring only twice in 26 games.
