Impact, Haitian midfielder Steeven Saba agree on one-year deal

The Montreal Impact agreed to a one-year contract with Haitian international
midfielder Steeven Saba, with options for 2021 and 2022, the MLS club announced on Tuesday.
 
His acquisition will be completed after he receives his international transfer certificate. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Saba holds a U.S. passport and will not count as an international player.
 
 
“Steven confirmed the qualities we saw before inviting him to camp,” Montreal Impact sporting director Olivier Renard said in a release. “We are very happy to see him join the Impact and start the second phase of training camp as a full-time player.”
 
Saba, 26, is officially joining the first team after taking part in the first phase of training camp in Montreal and Orlando, Fla. He played the last two seasons with Violette Athletic Club, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in the Championnat national.
 
At the international level, Saba has played 12 games with the Haitian national team. He was named to the Best XI of the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup group stage, starting all five games for the Grenadiers, who reached the semifinals. He also scored his first international goal on June 21, 2019, against Nicaragua, in the first game of the tournament.
