Sounders Signs Colombian Defender Andres Correa

The Seattle Sounders have added depth to their defense by signing Colombian defender Andres Correa. Seattle announced the signing Tuesday. Correa, 21, spent the past four seasons playing for Fortaleza and Medellin in the Colombian First Division. Correa also has 10 appearances for the Colombian youth national teams, including the Colombian U-20 team that won the 2013 South American championship. Seattle coach Sigi Schmid said that although Correa is young, the Sounders see him as a contributor this year. Strengthening the Seattle defense has been a focus this offseason, made more important after DeAndre Yedlin's departure for Tottenham of the English Premier League. SEATTLE (AP) — February 11, 2015

Seattle MF Osvaldo Alonso Could Miss First 2 Games Of Season

Seattle Sounders midfielder Osvaldo Alonso could miss the first two games of the MLS regular season after undergoing groin surgery. Seattle coach Sigi Schmid said Monday that Alonso's recovery time is not completely known.

Alonso had surgery late last week in Southern California to remove scar tissue that was impinging on a nerve. Schmid said the team was pleased the surgery was not more extensive.
