Michael Tetteh loaned to Orlando City S.C. through July 10

Tetteh, Michael.jpgUPDATE 12:15 p.m. — In a statement to the Orlando Sentinel, Schmid said: “It’s important for Michael to get games at a good level.”

Sounders FC rookie Michael Tetteh has been loaned to Orlando City S.C., a USL-Pro team (third tier) through July 10. The 22-year-old midfielder/defender can be recalled by Seattle at any time and would be eligible for four USL-Pro games (July 1, 3, 8, 9).

A rookie from UC Santa Barbara, Tetteh hasn’t played yet in an MLS game but did dress Sunday versus New England. He played in Tuesday’s U.S. Open Cup match and has scored two goals in six Reserve League games.

Coach Sigi Schmid was asked today if he sees Tetteh more as a defender or midfielder, considering he’s played both this year.

“I think he’s still trying to figure that out,” Schmid said. “He does some good things. He’s a very good attacking left-back and he’s a good defending wide-left midfielder. For him, he’s got offensive skills and some unpredictability in his play attacking-wise that brings some good things to the field. With him, as all young players, it’s a matter of consistency and also sometimes responsibility defensively, but his potential is definitely there.”
