Wilmer Crisanto on Sounders Radar

Francis Bompard

Reports out of Honduras are that another Honduran Olympian may be joining the Sounders. A Seattle rep will be visiting his current team shortly.

According to Honduran daily Diez Wilmer Crisanto is again linked to the Seattle Sounders. Currently with Victoria, a team in need of money, Crisanto was also on the Honduras Olympic team with Mario Martinez and other MLS players.

Victoria is in the Apertura semi-finals facing Motagua this weekend and there are indications that a Sounders technical staffer will be visiting the team around that time. While the deal is not done, the publication does present quotes from Crisanto's current coach that it would help the player and the team improve if he were to transfer.

During the Olympics Crisanto played right back, right mid and left mid. He is more often deployed as a defender with his club team and appeared in 12 of 18 regular season matches. Just 23 years old Cristanto is in his sixth professional season while carrying experience with the Honduran U-17 and U-20 teams.

Last winter Seattle was connected with several other Hondurans, including Ever Alvarado and Harlinton Guttierrez who trained with the team. This is unlikely to be the last of the rumors connecting Seattle with players from the Central American power.
