Sounders acquire GK Frei from Toronto in trade
The Seattle Sounders have quickly filled their goalkeeper
vacancy, acquiring Stefan Frei from Toronto FC for a conditional
first round pick in the 2015 SuperDraft.
Tuesday’s trade came a day after the Sounders declined their
2014 contract option on goalkeeper Michael Gspurning.
The 27-year Frei was Toronto’s career leader in appearances and
had spent more time on the club than any other player. He missed
most of the past two seasons with injuries, including a broken
lower leg in 2012. He has played in just one MLS game the past two
Frei has a 1.54 goals-against average in 82 MLS regular-season
starts. He was Toronto’s first-round pick of the 2009 MLS
SuperDraft, and he played in college at California.
