Marcus Hahnemann tweets he’ll return; Obafemi Martins wants to play in Turkey?

What do you want first: good news or bad news?

The good news is it appears Marcus Hahnemann will be returning to the Sounders next year (see the tweet above). The 41-year-old goalkeeper is out of contract and said after last week’s season-ending loss to Portland that he would weigh his options. Hahnemann started three of the six final games of 2013, plus it’s worth noting that there is still a decision to be made on Michael Gspurning.

The bad news is Obafemi Martins is apparently quoted in an Italian report (English here) as saying he feels “out of the loop” in Seattle and would like to play in Turkey, specifically Galatasaray under his former coach at Inter Milan, Roberto Mancini. The report noted it could be as an offseason loan or a more long-term move. Martins, for his part, didn’t have anything bad to say about MLS, the Sounders, the fans or the United States but that he wants to go back to Europe to strengthen his chances of making Nigeria’s World Cup team. The DP forward added that he has asked his agent to look at his options.

The Sounders declined to comment on both issues, noting with Hahnemann that there is no new contract to announce.
