While MLS teams are trading players left and right the Seattle Sounders have yet to acquire a player from within the league. But there are hints being dropped in Honduras that they are now targeting two players for acquisition. The Wilmer Crisanto rumors are known, but today a Honduran twitter account relays that Victoria's President is hinting that another defender will join him in Rave Green.
Víctor Kawas dio a entender que José Velásquez Colón se va junto a Wilmer Crisanto. Podría ir al @soundersfc junto con Crisanto.— El Canterano (@ElCanteranoHN) December 12, 2012
Kawas is the President of Victoria, where both players currently play. Jose David Velasquez Colon started 13 matches at center back for the club, as well as all four matches at the London 2012 Olympics for Honduras. El Canterano also provided this tweeted scouting report on Colon.
@chamberiecs José Velásquez Colón is a CB, he's very good. Young, he participated in the 2012 Olympics. Wilmer Crisanto is an offensive RB.— El Canterano (@ElCanteranoHN) December 12, 2012
If this rumor becomes reality the Sounders would have three Honduran Olympians and MLS a total of six.
