Soccer Montreal Impact acquire Panamanian midfielder Omar Browne

The Montreal Impact have acquired Panama international midfielder Omar Browne on a loan agreement.

The deal with Panamanian club C.A. Independiente de La Chorrera is for the rest of the season and then the MLS club has the option to buy.

Browne, 24, has spent his entire career in Panama’s first division, playing with Plaza Amador, Sporting San Miguelito, Chorrillo, and Independiente. He scored 15 goals over the past two seasons with Independiente, taking part in 49 games, including 39 starts.

He recently took part in the 2019 edition of the CONCACAF Champions League, helping his team reach the quarterfinals after scoring twice in two games against Toronto FC in the round of 16. He added an assist in the following round against Sporting Kansas City.

Browne has played in four games with Panama’s national team.

“Omar is a young attacking player who adds depth to our group,” said Impact head coach Remi Garde. “He’s technically gifted, quick, and powerful. It’s interesting to have a left-footed player who can play both on the left and on the right.”

The Impact return to action Saturday in Philadelphia against the Union.
