Zakaria Messoudi is heading to the Ottawa Fury in the NASL, the Montreal Impact announced on Friday.
With the 20-year-old midfielder having yet to feature with the Impact in MLS ever since signing with the club last year, head coach Frank Klopas explained that a move to Ottawa will offer the youngster a chance at regular playing time.
"It's a good opportunity to gain valuable experience," Klopas said in a club press release. "He'll get more playing time in real game situations, which is very important for his development as a young player."
Over the last two seasons, the Impact academy graduate recorded one goal and four assists in 14 MLS reserve games. He also represented Canada at the 2013 Under-20 CONCACAF Championship in Mexico.
