Ex-Premier League trio Traore, Martins, Dempsey available for Seattle Sounders

Seattle Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid will welcome back a trio of quality players for Wednesday's meeting with Vancouver Whitecaps.

Former Liverpool defender Djimi Traore, ex-Newcastle United and Inter Milan striker Obafemi Martins and former Fulham and Tottenham star Clint Dempsey will all be available for the Cascadia clash.

"Djimi came through yesterday all right and trained today, so we think he's available for tomorrow," Schmid said.

"(Martins), same thing: he came through and he's available for us. Clint will be in the 18 for us, as well."

Traore and Martins did not play in the weekend's 5-1 loss to Colorado Rapids because of hamstring and groin problems respectively while Dempsey has been out since mid-September with niggling injuries including a hamstring.
