Sounders sign Martins to multi-year extension

SEATTLE (AP) The Seattle Sounders announced a multi-year contract extension Tuesday for forward Obafemi Martins with the striker coming off an MVP-caliber regular season.

Terms of the deal were not announced by the club, but Martins said after practice Tuesday that he was excited to stay with Seattle and hoped to play with the Sounders for "three years as the contract says." According to the Major League Soccer Players' Union, Martins made slightly more than $1.75 million in guaranteed compensation this past season with Seattle as a designated player.

Martins is among the favorites for league MVP after scoring a franchise-record 17 goals and adding 13 assists as Seattle finished with the best record in the league and won the Supporters' Shield for the first time in club history. Martins assisted on the game-winning goal in Seattle's 2-0 win over Los Angeles last weekend that clinched the regular-season title. (MORE)
