Tanzanian winger Mrisho Ngassa is reportedly close to signing with MLS outfit Seattle Sounders.

The talented 22-year old has been on trial with the Sounders and it seems as though he will join the club by the end of the summer according to a report on IPP Media.

The general secretary of Azam FC, Nassor Idrissa, indicated that Ngassa was just set to agree personal terms with MLS before becoming a Seattle player in the not too distant future.

"We're behind him because we know that is one step forward in his life and the stage of discussion between us (Azam) and the US club are going well," he said.
