Seattle reaches contract agreement with Cooper

The Seattle Sounders and forward Kenny Cooper have reached a

contract agreement for the 2014 season.

The Sounders announced the signing on Thursday. Terms of the

deal were not released by the club.

Seattle acquired Cooper last week in a trade with FC Dallas in

exchange for midfielder Adam Moffat. Seattle also received

allocation money from Dallas.

Cooper, 29, has made 188 career appearances since joining MLS in

2006 and has 72 goals and 16 assists. Last season for Dallas,

Cooper had six goals and started 19 of 31 games played. Seattle is

hoping Cooper can return to his form of two seasons ago with New

York when he scored 18 goals in 33 games for the Red Bulls.
