Seattle Sounders secure ex-DC United defender Burch

Seattle Sounders have acquired defender Marc Burch from DC United it has been announced.

The 27-year old, who has spent the past five seasons in Washington, had been selected by Seattle during the MLS Re-Entry Process Stage 2 Draft on December 12 and has now agreed a contract.

"We are happy to have Marc signed," said Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid. "He will be a welcome addition to an already deep team.

Burch added: "I'm excited to take another step forward in my career and to play again for Sigi in Seattle. Seattle has made an impact during its short history since coming into league. I've always respected the way the Sounders played and I just want to help push them further.

"The Sounders have done well in their first few seasons, making the playoffs and winning the Open Cup," he added further. "I would like to help them take that next step, to go further in the Champions League and the MLS playoffs. I believe they have what it takes to win an MLS Cup and hopefully I can help them achieve that."
