Report: Jukka Raitala traded from Los Angeles Football Club to Montreal Impact

The Finnish back is again on the move.

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.

Less that two hours prior to Carlisle’s tweet, Raitala was selected by Los Angeles Football Club with the fourth pick in the MLS Expansion Draft.

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.
