Paul Chiasson

The Montreal Impact have re-signed French midfielder Hassoun Camara, making their 2011 MVP the first player from last season's squad to join the club's Major League Soccer roster for 2012.

Camara is the second player to sign with the Impact for its inaugural season in MLS, joining Colombian defender Nelson Rivas.

"This deal represents a good opportunity for Hassoun to play at a higher level and to challenge himself," Impact head coach Jesse Marsch said in a statement. "For the club, it's an opportunity to add a quality player to our roster. At the same time, it brings continuity from the 2011 season for our debut next year in MLS."
