Sounders Insider

Sounders fitness, Ream transfer, SI's all-time draft

The Sounders return to the Seahawks indoor training facility in Renton this morning to begin two days of fitness testing. I'll be back here afterward with some highlights, and probably a few tweets before that.

Meanwhile, a few other soccer notes:

* The New York Red Bulls announced today that Major League Soccer and English Premiership side, Bolton Wanderers FC, have agreed to a transfer fee for Red Bulls defender and United States National Team international Tim Ream. Ream has agreed to personal contract terms with Bolton, earned United Kingdom visa approval and passed a physical. The transfer terms were not disclosed. Details here.

* Sports Illustrated has conducted an interesting draft of the best soccer players of all time.

* In MLS Western Conference news, here's a piece on the newest Colorado Rapid: Colombian midfielder Jaime Castrillon. And here's an Oregonian look at the Timbers' first game-like work of the new season.
