Henry Wingo returns to Sounders, but maybe not for long

Wingo had been on a sort of trial with Norway’s Molde and could be heading back there.

Henry Wingo returned to Seattle Sounders training on Tuesday, but it sounds like it may only be temporary. Wingo had been training with Norway’s Molde for the past two weeks.

“I think there are some things cooking behind the scenes,” Sounders head coach Brian Schmetzer said. “But if he goes, great for him. If he stays, we’re happy to have him back. We have not yet done anything with him, I’ll make that clear.”

Reading between the lines a bit, some sort of move seems like a solid bet. Molde is apparently looking to add some talent and were impressed by what they saw.

“He has been positive on the field and also outside,” Molden sporting manager Øystein Neerland told Eurosport. “He has made a good impression on the team and has been a good player to have in training.”

If Wingo were to go to Molde, it would likely be on a loan after which the Sounders would still have his MLS rights. The only way the Sounders would lose his rights is if they agreed to a full transfer, which seems unlikely given that Norwegian teams are rarely big spenders on the market and his fee would be unlikely to net much for the Sounders.
