Sounders FC signs Kevin Parsemain

It’s finally official: Sounders FC has signed forward Kevin Parsemain, a 26-year-old forward from Martinique who has been with the team since the start of preseason.

Per team and MLS policy, terms were not disclosed. Parsemain will take up the seventh and final international roster slot for Seattle.

“Kevin is a technically clean striker with a nose for the goal,” said sporting director Chris Henderson in a news release. “He is a proven goal scorer for Martinique and we expect that to translate in MLS. We are looking forward to seeing Kevin debut for the Rave Green soon.”

Parsemain scored three goals in preseason, tied with Obafemi Martins for the team lead. He has played professionally since 2004, including stops at Le Mans B and Evian in France and most recently at Riviere-Pilote in Martinique.

In previous interviews, Parsemain said he was spotted by the Sounders during last summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, when he played for Martinique (including one game at CenturyLink Field, a 1-0 win over Canada).
