Report: Sounders signing Danish winger



The Seattle Sounders appear to be hitting the international market during transfer season yet again.

After officially announcing the acquisition of Swedish right back Adam Johannson on Thursday, the Sounders are reportedly close to signing Danish winger Christian Sivebaek, a player general manager Adrian Hanauer told the Seattle Times that the Sounders are "very interested" in acquiring. 

According to reports out of Denmark, Sivebaek, a 23-year-old former Denmark youth international and current player for FC Midtjylland, is on his way to Seattle, where he is slated for a place in the midfield. The prospective move would continue Seattle's foray into Scandinavia, where it has signed players such as past Sounders Freddie Ljungberg and Erik Friberg and now Johannson.

The move for Sivebaek would be the third international signing this offseason for Seattle after the club signed Austrian goalkeeper Michael Gspurning.

What do you think about the Sounders' recent moves? Think the club is taking the right steps this offseason? What other positions do you think the team needs to address heading into 2012?
