Sounders sign draft pick Fabio Pereira

The Sounders made another move Thursday, signing draft pick Fabio Pereira. The 22-year-old midfielder was selected with the last pick in the MLS SuperDraft, No. 77 overall in the fourth round out of Michigan.

Per MLS and team policy, terms were not disclosed, but expect him to take up a development slot on the roster. Pereira will be added to the roster pending receipt of his P-1 visa.

The native of Sao Paulo, Brazil, had two goals in preseason. In college, his 22 assists were second all-time in program history.

“Fabio is a young player who is skillful and has a nose for goal coming out of the midfield,” said coach Sigi Schmid in a news release.  “He has good vision and desire. We are excited to add Fabio to our mix.”
