[MLS] The Montreal Impact, whose NASL season ended when it did not qualify for the playoffs, has begun work on building its team for its MLS debut in 2012. It announced the signing of 28-year-old Colombian defender Nelson Rivas as its first MLS signing.

Rivas played nine Serie A games for Inter Milan in three seasons with the Italian giant. He also spent time on loan to Livorno in Italy (2009-10) and Dnipro in Ukraine (2011).

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.

Coach Jesse Marsch is holding a week-long evaluation camp for possible Impact players. Rivas is expected to attend the camp.

2011 Impact players:
Goalkeepers: Evan Bush, Bill Gaudette, Greg Sutton, Maxime Crepeau.
Defenders: Philippe Billy, Simon Gatti, Cameron Knowles, Karl Ouimette, Nevio Pizzolitto.
Midfielders: Leonardo Di Lorenzo, Luke Kreamalmeyer, Amir Lowery, David Testo, Sinisa Ubiparipovic, Ian Westlake.
Forwards: Mignane Diouf, Mircea Ilcu, Miguel Montano, Ryan Pore.

Defenders: Wes Knight, Alexis Zywiecki.
Midfielders: Jeremiah White, Bratislav Ristic.

    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.
