On 20 May 2014, Toko signed a three-year contract with English club Brighton & Hove Albion following the conclusion of his contract at Grasshoppers.[3][5] His agent revealed that Toko had turned down a move to Russia.[6]

In March 2011, he chose to play for Switzerland and represented the Swiss under-21 team in games against Saudi Arabia and Qatar.[12] He later represented the under-21 team during 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship qualification.[13]

In December 2012, he was named in DR Congo's 28-man provisional squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.[14] Although Toko did not make the final squad, he was later called up for DR Congo's 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification campaign.
