FC Dallas trades for GK Chris Seitz

FC Dallas has acquired goalkeeper Chris Seitz from Seattle in a

trade for a fourth-round draft pick in 2012.

The 23-year-old Seitz spent the 2010 season with the

Philadelphia Union before Seattle took him ninth in the MLS

re-entry draft Wednesday.

With Philadelphia, Seitz made 22 starts and allowed 1.8 goals

per game, with a 5-12-6 record.

Real Salt Lake chose Seitz third overall in the 2007 draft.

Seitz also helped the United States’ Under-23 team make the 2008

Beijing Olympics.
