MONTREAL – The Montreal Impact acquired an international roster spot for the 2014 season on Friday from the Colorado Rapids for defender Tyson Wahl. As per Major League Soccer and Impact policy, details of the deal were not disclosed.
“We want to thank Tyson for his time in Montreal,” said Impact head coach Jesse Marsch. “He was very committed and showed a lot of leadership to this organization. We wish him the best of luck with the Rapids.”
“Although it wasn’t always easy for him during his stay, he remained a true professional from the first day," added Impact sporting director Nick De Santis. "We want to thank him for his services and wish him the best in Colorado.”
