Christian Tiffert set to be Seattle Sounders DP

Seattle Sounders are set to name German midfielder Christian Tiffert as their new DP.

Tiffert, 30, made 136 appearances for Stuttgart from 2000-06. He then played for Red Bull Salzburg in Austria and Duisberg in Germany before joining Kaiserslautern in 2010.

"We wanted to bring in a player who is a central midfielder and has playmaking capabilities," Seattle coach Sigi Schmid said told seattlepi.com. "Christian is a player who fits this mold and brings a lot of experience from the top league in Germany. His leadership and versatility make him a good fit for our club."
