Two Sounders sources agree that a club official is in Spain tying to arrange the transfer of forward Obafemi Martins. Martins is 28 years old, from Nigeria, formerly of Newcastle United, and currently playing with La Liga club Levante.

(Levante plays Osasuna today, and the game will be shown on the BeIN Sports cable channel at 2 p.m.)

If the deal works, word could come quickly, perhaps in the next day or two — perhaps even ahead of what is expected to be the accompanying move of buying out designated player Christian Tiffert.

But while things could happen quickly from here, no announcement is expected today.
