Seattle Sounders' Gambian winger Sanna Nyassi is settling in well according to his coach.

The brother of New England Revolution standout Sainey Nyassi, Sanna has scored three preseason goals already for the Sounders and is making his mark in other areas too.

Seattle Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid told the Seattle Post Intelligencer: "His speed is what sets him apart. But what really shows more than anything is that he was very opportunistic. His work rate and effort have been very exemplary. He's fought for loose balls, and he's worked back when he's lost the ball."
