[MLS TRANSACTIONS] Miguel Montano, who played on loan from Seattle to Montreal in the second-division North American Soccer League in 2011, has signed an MLS deal with the Impact for 2012.

The Colombian forward is the fifth player from the 2011 Impact roster to be thus promoted. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Montano, 20, joined the Impact on loan in mid-August. In six games he scored one goal and contributed two assists. Prior to the loan he’d played two games for the Sounders’ senior team and five matches with the reserves this season.

"In 2011, Miguel showed that he is a dangerous, mobile, and intelligent young forward and his performances helped the team to a very strong second half of the season," said Impact coach Jesse Marsch in a team statement. "Moving into MLS, we believe that Miguel is ready to elevate his game even more and contribute to a successful year in 2012."

The Sounders signed him in 2010 after he’d scored 13 goals in 19 appearances for Club Atlético Quilmes in Argentina. For Seattle he played 12 matches in all competitions and registered two assists, but this season was unable to secure a regular spot on game-day rosters as Mike Fucito and Roger Levesque took the role as forward partner for Fredy Montero.
