Seattle Sounders midfielder Osvaldo Alonso has begun a week-long training spell with Premier League club West Ham United.

The 27-year old Cuban-American is in East London training with the Hammers in an agreement set up by his agent and the MLS club.

Alonso, who is a three-time Sounders MVP and a two-time MLS All-Star, had a similar stint in 2010 when he trained with Everton and caught the eye of West Ham with his 2012 performances which landed him a spot in the MLS Best XI.
