As you can see above, invitee goalkeeper Andrew Weber has indicated on Twitter that he’ll be signing with Sounders FC. This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise as the 28 year old has earned praise in training camp and has seen significant time in preseason games.
Weber has been with the team since the start of camp after he went unselected in the MLS Re-Entry Process. He’s been right in the mix to be the backup behind starter Michael Gspurning and it’s possible that decision has been made.
Now, it seems, the biggest question is how long he’ll stay on “The Amazing Race”?
Here’s a look at the roster moves this offseason:
IN (7): GK Michael Gspurning (discovery signing), D Adam Johansson (discovery signing), D Marc Burch (re-entry draft), F/M Cordell Cato (discovery signing), M Christian Sivebaek (discovery signing), F Eddie Johnson (trade following allocation process), GK Andrew Weber (expected free agent signing)
OUT (11): GK Terry Boss (retirement), M Erik Friberg (transfer to Malmo FF), F Mike Fucito (trade to Montreal), D Taylor Graham (retirement), F Nate Jaqua (option declined), GK Kasey Keller (retirement), M Miguel Montano (loan expired), M Lamar Neagle (trade to Montreal), F/M Pat Noonan (option declined), D James Riley (expansion draft), D Tyson Wahl (trade to Montreal)
And here’s the roster update from last week, with defender/midfielder Amadou Sanyang the only expected departure since then.
