The alarm was raised last night when the Impact listed two goalkeepers on the bench for the game at Red Bull Arena, and none of them was Evan Bush.

Thierry Henry later revealed during his post-match video-conference that the experienced goalkeeper was about to be traded and further details would be provided by the club.

However prior to last night’s Vancouver - Portland clash, TSN’s Kristian Jack revealed that Bush was to be traded to Vancouver Whitecaps, who currently have goalkeepers, Max Crepeau and Thomas Hasal out injured.

An official announcement is expected early in the week by Montreal Impact to confirm the move.

The goalkeeper did not start any of the 18 games Thierry Henry has presided over as Impact coach.

Evan Bush holds most of the appearance records for Montreal Impact since it became an MLS club in 2012.

Most Appearances in MLS - 176 (he was also an unused sub in 91 MLS games, giving him an involvement in 267 MLS matches).

Most Appearances (all competitions) - 205 (also unused sub in 104 games, giving him an involvement in 309 matches).

Most Appearances in CONCACAF play - 13

The 34-year-old Ohio native won three Canadian Championships with the Impact and was named CONCACAF Champions League Golden Glove in 2014/15.

With 40 clean-sheets in MLS and 51 (all competitions), Bush is also the club record-holder in the MLS-era in each of these categories.

2020 is his 9th season as a Montreal Impact player.
