The Vancouver Whitecaps waived defender Wes Knight last week and just recently I was told the right back will join Sounders FC on trial, possibly as soon as Tuesday.

Here is a recent tweet from Knight, who turns 25 tomorrow. The South Carolina native played for the USL Whitecaps before making the leap to MLS and is particularly intriguing due to his age and ability to prove depth at right back (an ongoing pursuit for Seattle).

Keep in mind, we’ve seen many trialists come and go this season — a few have eventually signed (e.g. Mauro Rosales, Sammy Ochoa), but most of them have not.
