EDMONTON, AB - FC Edmonton and Club de Foot MontrÃ©al of Major League Soccer (MLS) have reached a loan agreement for midfielder Tomas Giraldo without a right to recall for the 2021 season, the club announced today.
Giraldo (6'0 , 163 pounds) was born in Medellin, Colombia and came to Canada at the age of eight. He joined the MontrÃ©al Impact U13 Academy in 2015, after playing with FSS Salaberry. Following his time with the Academy, Giraldo signed his first professional contract as an off-roster player with MontrÃ©al for the 2020 season.

He is a technically sound midfielder who we anticipate will come in and compete for playing time immediately."
The 17-year-old also took part in his first Canada Men's U17 National Team camp in 2019, before taking part in the CONCACAF U17 Championship and the FIFA U17 World Cup in Brazil, also in 2019.
