More coming today on this development. The 34-year old Swiss striker will fulfill his commitments with FC Twente and the national team before arriving on a free transfer.
Some quotes via team release:
NKUFO
“I am really motivated. It is a big challenge because as a player and as a man, I wish to settle and live in Seattle. For now, I remain totally committed, totally focused on Twente, and doing whatever I can to help them win the league and the cup.”
SIGI SCHMID
“Blaise is a proven goal scorer who’s had a good run with the Swiss national team and a tremendous career at Twente. He is a player that knows how to find space in the box at appropriate moments.”
