Seattle Sounders sign striker Will Bates

Seattle Sounders FC has signed forward Will Bates, the club announced today.

Per Major League Soccer and club policy, terms were not disclosed.

Bates, 22, was selected by Sounders FC with the fifth overall selection in the 2013 MLS Supplemental Draft on January 22. The former University of Virginia forward joined Sounders FC training in early February.

"Will is dangerous in the box and always plays hard," said Sounders FC Sporting Director Chris Henderson. "He can score with both feet and with his head. He provides us with depth at forward and we are excited to have him in Seattle."
