The Canadian was a fan favourite with Toronto FC.

The Montreal Impact announced today that they’ve traded left winger Raheem Edwards to the Chicago Fire in exchange for $400,000 in Targeted Allocation Money. Edwards broke into the league last season with Toronto FC, making 25 total appearances for the Reds in 2017. He’s also got four caps with the Canadian men’s national team, and he’s considered an up-and-coming member of John Herdman’s squad.

Edwards has scored twice in 14 games this season, but he seems not to have clicked quite well enough with Montreal. The Impact acquired him in the winter after Los Angeles FC took him from TFC in the Expansion Draft.

TFC fans were certainly sorry to see him go, since Edwards was a fan favourite in Toronto, as someone who rose up through League1 Ontario and TFC II to carve out some minutes with the first team. Perhaps Toronto supporters can now feel a little less guilty rooting for him now that he no longer players for Montreal...
