John Kennedy to Seattle Sounders

Colombian Defender John Kennedy Hurtado, 24 has signed with Major League Soccer's new franchise Seattle Sounders according to Enlajugada.com .

Hurtado was on trial with AC Milan for 3 weeks with permission from his former team Deportivo Cali. Though he impressed he was not held on a team full of stars such as Maldini, Pato, Ronaldinho, Kaká and Beckham. While in Europe he was close to signing with Swiss side Grasshoppers but visa issues stood in the way.

Now Hurtado seems to be headed to Seattle to play along his former teammate Freddy Montero.
