Seattle Sounders sporting director Chris Henderson admits things are tracking well for some new signings this offseason.
The Sounders are yet to bring in any players of note ahead of the 2013 season but Henderson is confident that recent scouting missions with head coach Sigi Schmid could prove successful.
"I think it's about what we expected," he told the Seattle Times of the Sounders' offseason so far.
"We knew we had some cap constraints, and we've been working on a lot of different issues with that.
"I had an opportunity to go scout overseas for about six weeks total, and had an opportunity to scout with (coach Sigi Schmid), which is very hard to do, as you know, with the schedule. But anytime you get to scout with the head coach, it's a great opportunity.
"So we feel really good about those developments. I think we're working on a few things that can really help our team, so we'll see how things develop."
