Rod Fanni, veteran defender, is expected to sign with Impact shortly. Marseille parted ways with the Frenchman at the end of February. He has experience at both the right back and center back position.

Acquiring this free agent could stabilize the line up that was thrown a curve ball with the Diallo injury. The 36-year-old, in 361 games in Ligue 1, has scored 1 goal and has 21 assists. He is a physical player who, even in his mid-thirties, is able to use his speed very well.

While Fanni did not fit Marseille manager, Rudi Garcia’s plans for the 2018 season he could be a good solution for the Impact. Given that the Impact is going into their first game against Vancouver in a few hours the news of this acquistion if it is true should come early next week.

Stay tuned.
