GM Adrian Hanauer: ‘We are finalizing the loan of Fredy Montero to Millonarios of Colombia for the 2013 MLS season.’

Sounders FC general manager and part owner Adrian Hanauer released this statement Thursday morning. This is the team’s first comment regarding Fredy Montero‘s loan to Colombia’s Millonarios:

“We are finalizing the loan of Fredy Montero to Millonarios of Colombia for the 2013 MLS season. We hope to have this transaction completed in the next few days. Fredy has been a tremendous part of our success the last four years and this decision was not taken lightly. This was a process that Fredy and the Sounders cooperated on, and our hope is that it works out successfully for both parties.”

This appears to confirm the loan will be a year long. Based on Hanauer’s previous statements, it would also appear to open up a designated player spot on Sounders FC’s roster. Cue the incoming rumors.

Millonarios starts its preseason today, so we might see some pictures of Montero in a new uniform later on.
