We've got ten new names to follow now, and even if some are traded away before kick off 2009, the new Sounders FC players are news right now.

Bermuda blaster Khano Smith, a mixture of athleticism, cockiness, brilliance and occasional mind-bogglingly bad tackles, talks with the Bermuda Sun about coming to Seattle:

"I was out of contract so I wasn't protected this time, as I have been in other seasons, so I knew it was a possibility that I would be picked up. "I talked to the Seattle manager and technical director and they were keen to have me over there. They've offered me a good deal and I'm looking forward to the challenge."

In the Royal Gazette, Smith says: "This is a completely new experience for me and it feels strange, but the Sounders wanted me and that's a really nice feeling.

"I've spoken with their technical director and he said he was excited to have me onboard and was looking forward to me becoming a Sounders player."

A Revs blogger says you get what you get with Smith: "Despite the valleys and peaks, Khano Smith must be appreciated for the player he was: a playfully unpredictable performer who occasionally teased you with glimpses of his full potential."
