Seattle Sounders sign midfielder Michael Farfan from D.C. United
SEATTLE -- The Seattle Sounders have bolstered their midfield before the start of training camp by signing veteran Michael Farfan.
The Sounders announced Farfan's signing Wednesday, two days before players report to the start of camp.
Farfan spent last season with D.C. United, where he appeared in 17 matches. Before joining D.C., Farfan played three seasons with the Philadelphia Union.
Farfan started 31 of his 32 matches during the 2012 season when he set career highs in appearances, minutes played and assists. Farfan was sold to Cruz Azul of Liga MX in Mexico for the 2014 season.
Seattle general manager Garth Lagerwey says the club was first interested in signing Farfan last year and is happy to be able to add him now.
