Updated: Feb 9, 2020
The Montreal Impact announced on Tuesday the signing of Haitian international midfielder Steeven Saba on a one-year contract.
“Steven confirmed the qualities we saw before inviting him to camp,” said Montreal Impact sporting director Olivier Renard.
“We are very happy to see him join the Impact and start the second phase of training camp as a full-time player.”
The deal includes options for 2021 and 2022, and will be official upon receipt of his international transfer certificate.
Saba, who holds an American passport and won’t count as an international player, had been in preseason camp with Montreal as a trialist.
Saba, 26, spent the last two seasons with Violette Athletic Club, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in the Championnat national. He made his senior international debut for Haiti on May 30, 2018, and has since appeared in 12 matches.
Saba was named to the Best XI of the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup group stage as Les Grenadiers made the tournament's semifinal round.
