Ottawa Fury FC open a three-game road trip Wednesday evening in Orlando and the squad will have some reinforcements coming from Montreal. The Montreal Impact announced on Tuesday that Canadian defender Wandrille Lefèvre, along with forward Nick DePuy have been loaned to Ottawa.
Lefèvre, born in Chartres, France, played 48 games in MLS with the Montreal Impact since 2013. In four seasons with the Impact, the 27-year old has had 41 starts, scoring two goals and adding two assists. He has also played in one MLS playoff game, five CONCACAF Champions League games and six Canadian Championship games - where he is a two-time winner in 2013 and 2014.
Lefèvre who became a Canadian citizen in July 2015, also boasts International experience, having earned three caps with the Canadian Men's National Team, making his debut on October 13, 2015, in a 1-1 friendly tie against Ghana. He was also called up in November 2015 for two CONCACAF fourth-round World Cup qualifiers.
Also available for selection will be forward Nick Depuy who played two 90-minutes games with Fury FC this season. Most recently, the 6-foot-5 striker featured in the 3-1 win against Charlotte Independence last Saturday.
Per the Right of Recall incorporated in the loan agreement, both players can return to the Impact at any time.
Wednesday's game marks the first of three straight games away from home. After the match in Orlando, Ottawa will visit Tampa Bay on Saturday before closing out the road trip August 23 in Cincinnati. Fury FC return home on August 27 to take on New York Red Bulls II.
