    MONTREAL - The Montreal Impact announced Tuesday that it has traded Costa Rica international Johan Venegas to Minnesota United in exchange for defender Chris Duvall.

    Minnesota United, which will play its Major League Soccer season in 2017, acquired Duvall earlier in the day from the New York Red Bulls in the first round of the 2016 MLS Expansion Draft.

    Venegas, who helped Costa Rica win the 2014 Copa Centroamericana title, originally joined Montreal from Alajuelense on August 3, 2015. He appeared in 39 combined regular- and post-season games, scoring three goals.

    The midfielder has scored two goals in 13 all-time Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League games, all with Alajuelense.
