The Impact give allocation money to Toronto in return of Dominic Oduro

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

The MLS off-season is clearly owned by Canada from the coast to coast and Montreal has joined the party with the Vancouver Whitecaps and Toronto FC. After acquiring Laurent Ciman on a free transfer and trading Felipe Martins to the New York Red Bulls, the Montreal Impact acquire Dominic Oduro and sends allocation money the other way .

The Ghanaian striker played in a total of 258 games during the MLS season and playoffs. His path has crossed with Frank Klopas in 2011 and 2012 when Oduro was a Chicago Fire player.

The club has been more aggressive than in past years on the transfer and MLS trade market and is rapidly adding depth, experience and talent to a squad that needed an overhaul. Oduro brings extreme speed to an offensive sector that is not necessarily slow but needed to be more explosive.

Technical Director Adam Braz

This move allows us to add quality depth to our striker position, as we identified in our plan. Dominic is an experienced player who has scored in our league and adds a different profile to our attacking options."
