    Ballou Tabla




    Full name: Ballou Jean-Yves Tabla

    Date of birth: March 31, 1999

    Place of birth: Abidjan, Ivory Coast

    Height: 5 ft 9 in (1.75 m)

    Playing position: Attacking Midfielder

    Current Club: Montreal Impact

    Tabla was born in Abidjan, Ivory Coast but moved to Canada as a child where he was raised in Quebec. Tabla first joined the academy of the Montreal Impact of Major League Soccer in 2012. On December 9, 2013, he left the club to join local amateur team CS Panellinios. In April 2015, he returned to the Impact as part of the team's U18 side which finished the 2014/15 U.S. Soccer Development Academy in first place in the overall standings. He also played for Jets Pointe aux Tremble, another local amateur team. On October 20, 2016, the Montreal Impact announced they had signed Tabla to a two-year contract as a Homegrown Player, which would begin in the 2017 season.

    According to Sport and Washington Post's Steven Goff, we are in negotiations to sign the young attacking Midfielder, who would play for Barca B. However he could start playing with the Barcelona Juvenil A to get adjusted to the style of play.

    Going off impressions from the MLS reddit and the video he seems talented, but MLS and Europe are two totally different ball games and we will just have to wait and see I guess.

    Seems like a totally random transfer. I hope he was not expensive.

    Tabla is a traditional drum in the Indian subcontinent. Its similar to Conga and a percussion drum.

    Hope his movement on th pitch resembles the beat.
