Midfielder Davy Arnaud not returning with the Impact in 2014

MONTREAL – The Montreal Impact announced on Tuesday that Davy Arnaud, who is out of contract, will not be returning with the Impact in 2014.

The Impact acquired an international spot for both the 2014 and 2015 seasons from D.C. United in return for Arnaud, who would have been eligible for the MLS Re-Entry Draft this Thursday.

“It was going to be challenging for us to bring Davy back with the salary cap and 2013 being the final year of his contract,” said sporting director Nick De Santis. “He has always been a true professional and leader both on and off the field. He has served his role of captain well. We’d like to thank him for all he has done over the last two years with the Impact and we wish him all the best in the future.”

Last season, Arnaud scored one goal and added five assists in 24 games and 1,766 minutes of play.

The veteran of 12 MLS seasons had previously played for Kansas City before joining the Impact in November 2011.
