Seattle Sounders are extremely close to securing a move for the Honduran defender Wilmer Crisanto, who has been linked with the club in the past few months. Seattle Sounders failed to win the MLS title this season. Hence, the manager Sigi Schmid is extremely intent on building a squad that is capable of challenging for the title next season. The club came extremely close to progress into the final of the MLS cup final only to be beaten in the penultimate stage. The arrival of Wilmer Crisanto will certainly strengthen the team, while also providing the team with a strong foundation for the future.

The 23-year-old is currently at the Victoria club. The manager of Victoria, Hector Vargas recently admitted that he expects the player to sign up for the MLS club in the next few weeks, although the details of the transfer have not been revealed by him. He has said that there are a few things that need to be sorted out in order for the deal to be completed. He has praised the 23-year-old by saying that he has a promising future ahead of him. He has failed to confirm that the deal will take place because it is not confirmed yet.

“There is the option for Wilmer Crisanto to join Mario Martinez’s team (Seattle Sounders), there is a good chance that it can be confirmed in the coming days, it will be money that will come in and we are waiting. It’s not confirmed but there is great potential, because what I have understood is that this weekend the Sounders coaching staff want to confirm a few things, but until it is firm, it’s not confirmed,” said the two-day manager Hector Vargas. The club were recently beaten 4-2 by the eventual winners LA Galaxy in the MLS cup.
