Transfers: the door remains open for the Impact

The Impact could add a player to its squad during the current transfer period, according to Vassili Cremanzidis, assistant to the team's sporting director, Olivier Renard.

Cremanzidis, in a TSN radio interview on Saturday, declined to comment on rumors that the Impact came very close to securing the services of renowned Ghanaian attacking midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng, who eventually joined a campaign. Serie B team, Italy.

But generally speaking, the Montrealer has admitted that a player of Boateng's age, who is 33, is not really what the club is looking for.

“We're not trying to get a designated player who will be in their mid-thirties,” he said.

“That said, if there is a possibility that a veteran of a certain quality, who can bring experience and a presence in the locker room, can come for the right price, we will consider it”, he also indicated.

Overall, while the organization is mostly working to prepare for 2021, it is keeping an eye out for immediate reinforcement despite the various challenges posed by the global COVID-19 pandemic, which is complicating everything all the time.

In addition, the Impact still hopes to welcome its new left-back Mustafa Kizza, to whom he has had rights for more than two months. Normally, the 21-year-old Ugandan would already be in town. But he remained on loan with his current club (Kampala Capital City Authority FC) this summer due to all the uncertainty surrounding this season in MLS.

Now that it is clear that the season will be over, the club are trying to bring in Kizza to complete it, especially since they would badly need reinforcement on the left flank of their defense. The file is complex, but it is progressing, according to Cremanzidis.

“There has been a little development, we hope it will happen soon,” he revealed, without wishing to advance a date. However, the club would like the youngster to join the squad before October 29, the deadline for the current transfer window.
