Sounders Loan Michael Tetteh To Ft. Lauderdale Strikers

For the second time in about a year, the Seattle Sounders have loaned out Michael Tetteh to a Florida-based lower-division team. This time, he's joining the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers of the NASL as they head into the final stretch of their season. Last year, he played a handful of games for Orlando City of the USL-Pro.

Tetteh joins the Strikers as they fight for playoff positioning with five games left in their regular season. They've struggled a bit on defense, allowing 38 goals in 23 games, but it's unclear whether he'll play in the midfield or at fullback for the Strikers.

Tetteh's time with the Sounders has so far been disappointing, as he's often struggled with injuries and has never appeared in a league game and has just one senior team appearance in his two years with the team. He was the 20th overall pick in the 2011 SuperDraft and was signed to a Generation Adidas contract. He has played in the Sounders' last two Reserve League games, but especially with the addition of Mario Martinez and the return to health of Steve Zakuani, his opportunities even there are likely limited.

The Sounders have the ability to recall Tetteh if the need arrises.
