MONTREAL – The Montreal Impact announced on Thursday that it has come to terms on a new two-year deal, with options for 2019 and 2010, with homegrown defender Wandrille Lefèvre.
“We are happy to have come to terms with Wandrille on a new contract,” said Impact technical director Adam Braz. “Wandrille has progressed over his four years with the first team and has proven to be reliable when called upon. He understands the club culture and we look forward to his further contributions both on and off the field.”
“I am very excited to be back in Montreal," added Lefèvre. "This is my home. My relation with the supporters and the implications that I have with the city, since I arrived, were at the center of my decision to continue this adventure here.”
Lefèvre has played 45 games, including 40 starts, and 3,721 minutes in four seasons with the Impact, recording two goals and two assists. He has also played in one MLS Cup Playoffs game, five CONCACAF Champions League games and six Amway Canadian Championship games, helping the team win the Voyageurs Cup in 2013 and 2014.
He joined the Impact Academy in 2011 and played two seasons with the U21s before joining the first team. In 2011, Lefèvre also appeared in two games for the Impact in the NASL, the North American second division.
On the international scene, Lefèvre has started two games with the Canadian national team, making his debut on October 13, 2015, against Ghana. Originally from Chartres, France, he received his Canadian citizenship in July 2015.
