    Rivas has played for a few high-profile clubs such as Inter Milan, River Plate and Deportivo Cali. However, he has been struggling to play regularly in the past 4 years, accumulating 42 games since 2007. He has played a total of 16 games for Inter before being sent on loan at Livorno and Ukrainian club FC Dnipro. He was finally released by the Italian club on August 31st and was very close to signing with Greek club PAOK.

    Rivas, 28, has also played for River Plate and Deportivo Cali.

    The Impact will confirm the signature of Nelson Rivas as its first designated player tomorrow afternoon.
