The former Sweden and Arsenal midfielder Freddie Ljungberg has signed for the Seattle Sounders.

Ljungberg has been without a club since his contract with West Ham United was cancelled in August, after he retired from international football in June.

The former captain of Sweden is joining Major League Soccer's newest side under the 'designated player' ruling that allowed LA Galaxy to sign David Beckham from Real Madrid.
