Report: Ljungberg to join Seattle Sounders in MLS

Former Sweden captain Fredrik Ljungberg is reportedly set to sign for the Seattle Sounders in Major League Soccer.
Citing unnamed sources, Swedish television channel TV4 said Ljungberg was traveling to the United States on Sunday and will be presented by the team at a news conference Tuesday.
The 31-year-old Ljungberg, who quit the Swedish national team in June, was released by West Ham in August after the first year of a four-year contract. He had won the Premier League title with Arsenal in 2002 and 2004.
Ljungberg played in the last five major football tournaments for Sweden. They were the European Championship in 2000, 2004 and 2008, and the World Cup in 2002 and 2006.
