Joaquín Torres joins CF Montréal on loan

The pacy winger will play in the MLS next season but renewed his contract with Newell’s until 2022

Newell’s Old Boys have extended the contract of Joaquín Torres until December 2022 but he has been loaned to Club Foot de Montréal (formerly known as Montreal Impact) for the 2021 season.

The speedy attacker, who impressed in a loan spell at Volos of Greece last season, has failed to get himself back into the first-team plans of manager Frank Kudelka.

The last time he played a competitive match for Newell’s was in March 2019. Before that, he had enjoyed long spells in the first team, scoring 2 goals in 39 appearances for the club for which he made his pro debut in 2015.

Newell’s have revealed that Montréal have an option to make the deal permanent but the price agreed is unknown.

Torres is the third ex-Newell’s player to play for the MLS club, after Hernán Bernardello and Maxi Urruti. The latter left the club just weeks ago to sign for Houston Dynamo.
