Rivas came from Argentina's River Plate to Inter in 2007 for a transfer in excess of $10.5 million but will join the Impact on a free transfer.

    correct me if I'm wroing but I think that Sutton is still signed to the NYRB and was only loaned out to the Impact. Not sure what that means for the upcoming 2012 season.
