Roughly an hour later, Johnson was on his way to the Pacific Northwest, as the Seattle Sounders sent Lamar Neagle and Mike Fucito to Montreal in exchange for the 27-year-old striker, who spent the past four years bouncing from club to club after Fulham brought him across the Atlantic in January 2008.
Johnson, who scored 41 goals in 127 appearances during a seven-year stint in MLS with Dallas and Kansas City, will join a Seattle squad that has spent the past few seasons searching for a consistent partner for Colombian forward Fredy Montero.
The rest of Cascadia laughs. This is rich! Seattle just gutted their biggest strength (depth in midfield) with this move. What do you guys think?
