Well that didn’t take long.
According to a report from ESPN’s Jeff Carlisle, former Columbus Crew SC left back Jukka Raitala and former Toronto FC winger Raheem Edwards have been traded to the Montreal Impact in exchange for defender Laurent Ciman.
Okay. Sorry guys. #LAFC is sending Raheem Edwards (!) and Jukka Raitala to Montreal in exchange for Laurent Ciman.— Jeff Carlisle (@JeffreyCarlisle) December 12, 2017
With this, it appears the Impact will have their left-hand side locked up. It also means Black & Gold fans will see more of the Finnish left back than they would have if he have remained in LA.
