Seattle Sounders set to capture Ljungberg

Monday, October 27, 2008

Seattle Sounders is set to announce the signing of Swedish midfielder Freddie Ljungberg as its designated player at a news conference Tuesday, Swedish television channel TV4 reported.

The 31-year-old star will join the Sounders when they kick off their debut season in MLS in March.

Ljungberg, who quit the Swedish national team in June, most recently played for West Ham in the 2007/08 Premier League season.

He then reached an agreement with West Ham to terminate his four-year contract after one season.

Since then, it has been unclear if the Swede would continue his career.

Before last season, Ljungberg spent nine years with Arsenal, where he won the Premier League title in 2002 and 2004 and voted one of Arsenal's 50 greatest players in its history.

Ljungberg was selected Footballer of the Year in Sweden in 2002 and 2006 and played in the last five major football tournaments for Sweden - the European Championships in 2000, 2004 and 2008, and the 2002 and 2006 World Cups.
