SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Sounders have signed midfielder Nicolas Lodeiro to a new contract that keeps Seattle's captain tied to the club through the 2023 season.

Lodeiro's previous deal was set to expire after the 2021 season. Lodeiro has been key to Seattle's run of success over the past five seasons. 

They have reached the MLS Cup final four times and won two titles. 

Seattle also seems to be on the verge of a new deal for coach Brian Schmetzer, whose contract expired at the end of the season.
