Therefore, this is the list of Sounders available to Portland and Vancouver in the expansion draft Wednesday:
Here is a statement provided by the club:
“Expansion is good for our league, but the expansion draft is a tense and emotional time for the club and the players,” said Owner and General Manager Adrian Hanauer. “Unfortunately, we may lose one or two members of the Sounders family on Wednesday. Once the draft is complete, we will make the best of it and move forward, strengthening our team with the aim of winning championships.”
Here’s the release from the league, listing all available players:
Major League Soccer today announced the available player list for the 2010 Expansion Draft on Wednesday, November 24, at 2:00 p.m. ET. The Portland Timbers and Vancouver Whitecaps FC will each select 10 players during the 10-round draft.
Representatives from all 18 MLS clubs will participate in an Expansion Draft teleconference which will be streamed on MLSsoccer.com during a special LIVE edition of ExtraTime Radio. The coverage will begin at 1:45 p.m. ET.
Each current MLS club has had the opportunity to protect 11 players from their 2010 roster. Generation adidas players (who did not graduate at the end of the 2010 season) and Homegrown players are automatically protected and do not count against a team’s 11 protected roster spots. Designated Players with a no trade clause in their contract must be protected. MLS Clubs may lose no more than two players from their 2010 roster during the Expansion Draft.
Through the Expansion Priority Draft, Portland earned the first selection in the Expansion Draft.
A complete list of the Expansion Draft rules can be found on the Expansion Draft Page of MLSsoccer.com.
