Joevin Jones, Xavier Arreaga bolster already strong Seattle Sounders roster

With the primary transfer window deadline looming, the Seattle Sounders finalized the signings of fullback/winger Joevin Jones and center back Xavier Arreaga just under the wire.

Sounders supporters will be intimately familiar with Jones, who spent two seasons in the Pacific Northwest and was a critical player for the 2016 MLS Cup championship side.

Arreaga, who joins the club from Barcelona SC in Ecuador, doesn’t hold the same name recognition as Jones. But according to Sounders FC General Manager & President of Soccer Garth Lagerway, the 24-year-old Ecuadorian’s signing is the byproduct of years of hard work in the scouting department.
