RENTON, WASH. - The Seattle Sounders FC have signed forward Pat Noonan, it was announced today. Per Major League Soccer and club policy, terms were not disclosed.Noonan, 29, is a two-time MLS All-Star selection and ranks No. 3 in career goals and assists for New England. He has 14 U.S. National Team caps. The seven-year veteran was released by Colorado on March 23.
"I'm excited that Pat Noonan was available and we were able to sign him," Sounders FC head coach Sigi Schmid said. "My experience with him was a very good one in Columbus."
"Pat is a good player who can play a number of different positions on the field, and is a very solid professional."
I did a pretty thorough write-up of Noonan's career yesterday in case you missed it.
One added piece of information, Noonan is apparently 20th in goals among active MLS players.
