MONTREAL – The Montreal Impact announced on Sunday that it has come to terms on a new deal with forward Cameron Porter. As per MLS policy, details of the contract were not disclosed.
Porter, 22, played five games for the Impact in 2015 across all competitions during his rookie year. A knee injury in New England during his second MLS game sidelined him for the remainder of the season.

He notably scored an important goal at Olympic Stadium, on March 3, which pushed the Impact past Pachuca and into the semifinals of the CONCACAF Champions League.
The Impact now has 25 players under contract for the 2016 season : goalkeepers Evan Bush, Eric Kronberg and Maxime Crépeau, defenders Hassoun Camara, Laurent Ciman, Wandrille Lefèvre, Eric Miller, Ambroise Oyongo and Donny Toia, midfielders Eric Alexander, Kyle Bekker, Patrice Bernier, Marco Donadel, Jérémy Gagnon-Laparé, Calum Mallace, Ignacio Piatti, Nigel Reo-Coker, Andrés Romero, Maxim Tissot and Johan Venegas, as well as forwards Didier Drogba, Anthony Jackson-Hamel, Dominic Oduro, Cameron Porter and Romario Williams.
