Seattle acquires Frei from TFC

Seattle, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Seattle Sounders FC announced Tuesday that the club has acquired goalkeeper Stefan Frei from Toronto FC in exchange for a first-round pick in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft.

The 27-year-old started at least 26 games each of his first three seasons with TFC from 2009-11 but sustained a broken leg during preseason in 2012 and surrendered the starting spot. He has appeared in just one league match over the past two seasons.

"Stefan is a goalkeeper we have liked for a number of years," Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid said in a statement. "He is a quality professional who brings experience and leadership to the position. Adding Stefan at this point of his career was very attractive to us."

Frei posted a record of 20-35-25 with Toronto in MLS play, producing 19 shutouts.

Toronto compensated for Frei's departure by announcing Tuesday that the club has signed Joe Bendik to a multi-year contract. As per team and league policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
