If the Ambroise Oyongo saga was forgotten during the Montreal Impact's CONCACAF Champions League campaign, it's coming back to life. The controversy seems to be coming to an end as the player is on his way to Montreal. How do we know?

We will assume that both the twitter account and selfie are legitimate as the Impact is going to have a left back joining its ranks. The timing is almost perfect as Donny Toia has been injured since the early minutes of CCL final in Montreal. At this point, it's unclear if he is officially joining the Impact on transiting through the club.
Many questions are still left unanswered on what really happened since the trade between the Impact and the New York Red Bulls. Until then, Montreal is already focusing on its domestic challenges with a Amway Canadian Championship semi-final game vs Toronto FC this Wednesday and a crucial MLS game next Saturday against the Portland Timbers.
The club has confirmed that Oyongo is on his way to Montreal via the USA to get his work permit sorted out. Confirmation received via twitter from Patrick Vallée, the club's Director of Communications.
Oyongo n'est pas à Montréal, mais aux USA pour obtenir un permis de travail et visa canadien.Il ne sera pas à l'entraînement d'#IMFC lundi.— Patrick Vallée (@PatValleeMTL) May 4, 2015
