​DONE DEAL: Montreal Impact swoop for Algerian international Taider

Algeria international Saphir Taider has moved from his Italian club Bologna to Montreal Impact in North America's Major Soccer League (MLS), reports BBC Sport.

The 25-year-old has agreed a three-year deal, including a two-year loan from the Serie A side.

There is also a further option to keep him in Canada until 2021.

Bologna chairman Joey Saputo, who is also the owner of Montreal Impact, described the Algerian as a "competitive" player.

"It's an excellent signing for our club because Saphir is both young and has a lot of experience on the European stage," Impact coach Remi Garde said.
