Former Arsenal-England Nats Keeper on Trial with San Jose Earthquakes

Maybe you saw the tweet, or read the story.

Former England and Arsenal goalkeeper Richard Wright looks set to join San Jose Earthquakes after being given a trial at the MLS side by Frank Yallop.

 How can they do that? I mean transfer season is done, right?

Yep, but what isn't done is the opportunity to sign a Free. Wright is that. And so our dozens of other MLS quality players. Here's a list of those that were in England last year. The most notable is probably one Jay DeMerit.

The Playoff Signing Window closes Sept 15th. Which means a player signed after that could not play in the MLS Cup Playoffs.

The Sounders kind of have a single roster slot open, as they could move a player to the IR and sign one. Both Pat Noonan and Peter Vagenas seem to have injuries that are significant enough that Hanauer could make such a move.

Any Free out there that you would like to see Seattle pick up?
