Former Sounders legend Marcus Hahnemann reached an agreement with MLS and will find a new team through the Allocation process per MLSsoccer.com. The King County native (Kentridge and Newport High Schools) played for the A-League Sounders, Colorado Rapids, Fulham, Rochdale, Reading, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton. There is a tweet out of England today that indicates that the Seattle Sounders are making a play for the keeper.

Update: O'Rourke's post online has length of contract (this season plus option) as well as quotes from Hahnemann's agent.

The Sounders currently carry four keepers and starting keeper Michael Gspurning is a key to the team's 2012 success. Weber, Ford and Meredith make little money and there would seem to be salary cap concerns associated with Hahnemann.

Hahnemann is subject to the Allocation process due to his nine appearances with the United States National Team to include being one of the backups on the 2010 World Cup roster. The Sounders are 10th in Allocation order at this time. Toronto FC and Chivas USA hold the top two spots.
