Montreal Impact signs Montano from Seattle Sounders

Official release from Montreal Impact

Following the signing of English midfielder Ian Westlake earlier this week, the Montreal Impact announced Wednesday the signing of forward Miguel Montano for its debut season in Major League Soccer.

Per club and MLS policy, terms of the agreement will not be disclosed.

The Colombian forward becomes the fifth player from the 2011 Impact roster to join the team in MLS in 2012, and second player from Colombia after defender Nelson Rivas.

"In 2011, Miguel showed that he is a dangerous, mobile, and intelligent young forward and his performances helped the team to a very strong second half of the season," said Impact head coach Jesse Marsch. "Moving into MLS, we believe that Miguel is ready to elevate his game even more and contribute to a successful year in 2012."

Montano, 20, was loaned to the Impact by the Seattle Sounders FC, from Major League Soccer, on August 15, 2011. In six games with Montreal, including five as a starter (413 minutes of play), Montano registered one goal and two assists.
