Sounders midfielder Aaron Kovar preparing for new MLS season at Sheffield Wednesday

Sounders midfielder Aaron Kovar is spending the next two weeks preparing for the new Major League Soccer by training with the English club Sheffield Wednesday.

Kovar, 21, played in three MLS matches and complied just 25 minutes during his rookie season in Seattle. The 2011 Gatorade Washington State Player of the Year at Garfield High spent the previous two seasons at Stanford University, earning Pac-12 Freshman of the Year honors in 2012.

Sheffield Wednesday is currently in ninth place in the League Championship — England’s second division — three places and four points back of the final playoff berth for a place in the Premier League.
