Thanks to those who’ve inquired and/or passed along reports that Colombian central defender John Kennedy Hurtado is joining Sounders FC.
Nothing’s official yet, is all I can say at present. A report from the Web site enlajugada.com (en español), which broke the news, says Hurtado, a 24-year-old, has been transferred to Sounders FC from Deportivo Cali, the same club that Sounders FC forward Fredy Montero played for last season.
Here’s a local blog item on Hurtado from one of this blog’s readers that breaks it down in English.
Hurtado received a trial from AC Milan last month and played in a friendly against Hannover of Germany.
Hurtado was not with Seattle in practice today. I hope to have an update very soon.
