Sounders sign striker Obafemi Martins to contact extension

Talk about ringing in your birthday in style.

Sounders striker Obafemi Martins, who turns 30 today, has signed a multi-year extension to stay in Seattle, the club announced Tuesday in a release – though, per MLS and team policy, the terms of the new agreement were not disclosed.

Martins has scored 17 goals this season, the single-season club record and a mark that ranks him fifth in the league. He’s also dished out 13 assists – including the one that put the Sounders in front during Saturday’s Supporters-Shield-clinching victory over L.A. – in a tie for fifth-most in MLS.

“I’m very happy to have signed a contract to be with this team and these players for multiple years,” Martins said. “This season is not over yet, so I’m excited to do more and score more goals, but it’s nice to know I’ll be here going forward.”

More to come.
