Seattle Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid said young Colombian ace Miguel Montano is settling in nicely.

The promising 18-year old midfielder officially signed with the MLS club from Quilmes last month and after a stint with the Colombian U20 team, is back in training with the Sounders and Schmid is happy with how he is fairing.

"He's been here a while now so it's given him a chance to settle in this country,” Schmid told The Washington Post. “He went back and had his go as well with the Colombian Under-20 team so it's a little here or there in terms of he is traveling back and forth. But I think he is comfortable now with the team. He is comfortable with the players. He's comfortable in this country and his opportunity I think will come.

“When that opportunity will be, that's something we have to see exactly because we want to present him with a good opportunity. But certainly there's a lot of things that he has done in training that I like."
