Panamanian midfielder Jeanine reportedly still on Sounders' radar

Back in August the rumor was that he would be coming in the Winter. It's essentially transfer season and the rumor is back.

Seattle Sounders FC need some help in the central midfield. Even if they retain Osvaldo Alonso they would only have the Cuban, Erik Friberg and Cristian Roldan are the only two currently under contract. The answer may be Pedro Jeanine of San Francisco FC in Panama.

This is not the first time that Jeanine is connected to the Sounders. That first time was last Summer, right after the transfer window closed.

Panamanian super-agent Roberto Brown recently held a combine of that nation's best players, and wouldn't you know it, Sounders Scout and Assistant Coach Kurt Schmid was there.

Brown, as you'll recall, is Roman Torres' agent, helping the player and club deal with the signing saga.

Jeanine is only 22 and has Panamanian U23 and CONCACAF Champions League experience (he was even on the bench when San Fran played the Sounders in 2011). He's mostly a central midfielder with some time on the right side of the field as well.

With Garth Lagerwey's stated goal of getting younger, adding a 22-year-old CM helps that quite a bit.
