Chicago acquires Hurtado, Ianni in trade with Seattle

Bridgeview, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Chicago Fire added defenders Jhon Kennedy Hurtado and Patrick Ianni as well as the 13th overall selection in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft from Seattle Sounders FC on Wednesday in exchange for defender Jalil Anibaba, the eighth overall pick in the 2014 SuperDraft and a conditional third round selection in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft.

Hurtado joined Seattle in 2009 and went on to make 108 appearances for the Sounders in the regular season, scoring one goal with three assists.

The 29-year-old Hurtado was a finalist for MLS Defender of the Year and was an MLS All-Star selection in 2009, while Ianni joins the club after five seasons in Seattle, where he appeared in 83 matches for the team.

Ianni, 28, also captured back-to-back MLS Cups with the Houston Dynamo in 2006 and 2007.

"Adding Jhon, a former Defender of the Year finalist and defensive All-Star, automatically makes our team better," said Chicago Fire head coach and director of soccer Frank Yallop. "Along with Patrick, we are adding valuable depth on the defensive side. While this trade addresses a key need, we thank Jalil for his time in Chicago and wish him all the best with his new club."

Anibaba heads to Seattle after appearing in 107 games in all competitions in three seasons with the Fire, netting five goals with five assists.
