Schmid says newest signing 'for the future'

The Sounders signing of 19-year-old Gambian midfielder Amadou Sanyang got a little less attention since it was announced just hours before the 3-1 loss at Houston.

However, after the game, I did ask coach Sigi Schmid about his newest player.

"He's a guy who can play in the middle of midfield. It's a little bit more of a signing for the future as well because he's very young. I thought he played well when he was in Toronto. He's somebody that can help give us some depth, because we've put a lot of miles on our midfielders so far."
