Kelvin Leerdam has left Vitesse Arnhem to join MLS side the Seattle Sounders.

The versatile defender’s contract in Arnhem expired at the end of the season, paving the way for Leerdam to seal a move to the U.S.A, with Seattle Sounder’s confirming his signing, pending a visa.

Sounders Sporting Director and Vice President of Soccer Chris Henderson told the club’s website, “He has great experience playing at Feyenoord and Vitesse and his time with the Under-19 and Under-21 Netherlands teams, and he’s at a really good age to come over and help us for years to come.”

The 27-year-old spent five years in the Feyenoord first team, making 97 Eredivisie appearances before he joined Vitesse in 2013. He made 89 league appearances in Arnhem, scoring twelve times.
