Obafemi Martins tweets that he's a Sounder
Wow..Finally,I can now announce that I have just signed for Sounders FC..A big step to take in my career.it's a big challenge but I'm readyThe Sounders have been targeting the Nigerian forward since last month, with general manager Adrian Hanauer confirming the team's interest, but the two sides were not able to finalize a deal before the start of the season, reportedly because of complications in buying out Martins' contract with Levante.

Seattle parted ways with midfielder Christian Tiffert before the start of the season to free up a designated player spot on its roster for Martins, and now it appears the deal is done, or very close to finished, which is good news for a team that has failed to score in its first two games this season.
