The Sounders and Jeff Parke have finally agreed on a contract.
Seattle first selected Parke in the expansion draft, but he instead opted to play for the Vancouver Whitecaps. They brought him back this year, only to have him leave camp, once again, without a contract.
"We're excited to have Jeff Parke finally join the Sounders," said Sigi Schmid. "He is a very tough, hard-nosed defender who should help our team's defensive efforts."
The former Red Bulls defender will be added to the roster and will be available to play pending receipt of International Transfer Certificate.
