The Montreal Impact signed Uruguayan forward Santiago González via Discovery process on Friday. The deal will be finalized upon receipt of his international transfer certificate and his visa.

González played the first three years of his career with Institución Atlética Sud América, in Uruguay's first and second divisions. He joins the Impact after finishing first on his team with five goals and two assists in 14 games, all as starter, and 1,204 minutes in the 2013 Apertura of the Uruguayan Primera Division.

"Santiago is a young striker that has already played three professional seasons," said Impact Sporting Director Nick De Santis. "He is a dynamic forward that moves very well and can play with his back to the goal. It will take a bit of time to adapt, but I think he can bring a different element to the team."

During the 2012-13 season, the 21-year-old helped Sud América earn promotion to the first division after finishing atop the Uruguayan second division in scoring, recording four goals and three assists in 18 games and 1,034 minutes.

He was also part of Club Atlético River Plate's Academy, in Montevideo, his hometown club playing in the Uruguayan first division.

At the international level, González played two games with the Uruguayan U17 National Team at the 2009 FIFA U17 World Cup in Nigeria.
