Erik Friberg's MLS contract for 2012 will be exercised by the Seattle Sounders.

The 25-year old joined the Sounders ahead of the 2011 campaign and made an impression in midfield in his 34 appearances in all competitions.

Seattle general manager Adrian Hanauer indicated to the Seattle Times that the former Hacken man will be back at CenturyLink Field next season although there will be further discussions between both parties before it is official.
