Seattle Sounders general manager Adrian Hanauer has confirmed that the club will be looking to add to their midfield in the January transfer window.

Hanauer told the Seattle Times that there will certainly be some tinkering with the squad during the off-season and the centre of the pitch was somewhere the club feels they need to improve.

"We are definitely looking to add to the midfield," he said. "We believe we are very close on signing one player, and will not be shy about adding another, should the right scenario unfold."
