[MLS TRANSACTIONS] Could Seattle have found an answer for its goalkeeping vacancy with the acquisition of Stefan Frei from Toronto FC? The Swiss-born keeper is still only 27 and was Toronto's all-time leader in appearances across all competitions (99) but injuries had forced him to miss much of the last two seasons.

"Stefan is a goalkeeper we have liked for a number of years," said Sounders coach Sigi Schmid in a statement. "He is a quality professional who brings experience and leadership to the position. Adding Stefan at this point of his career was very attractive to us."

Frei's acquisition from Toronto FC in exchange for a 2015 conditional first round SuperDraft pick comes a day after Seattle declined an option of Austrian Michael Gspurning for the last two seasons.

Frei was selected as a Generation adidas signing in the first round of the 2009 MLS SuperDraft by Toronto FC out of Cal and considered one of the top goalie prospects to enter MLS in recent years.

D.C. UNITED. D.C. United acquired Montreal Impact captain Davy Arnaud, a 12-year MLS veteran with 48 goals in 297 games, for an international roster spot for the 2014 and 2015 MLS seasons.

"Davy is a versatile midfielder who has a wealth of MLS experience," said D.C. United GM Dave Kasper in a statement. "He will add leadership on the field and in the locker room, and we look forward to having him as part of United."
