SEATTLE -- The Seattle Sounders have signed Norwegian midfielder Magnus Wolff Eikrem after a mostly quiet offseason for the club.

Seattle announced the signing on Tuesday, with the deal being subject to Eikrem obtaining a U.S. work visa.

Eikrem spent the past three seasons with Malmo in Sweden's top division, winning league titles in the last seasons. Eikrem also played for the Netherlands' Heerenveen and played parts of two seasons for Cardiff.

Eikrem has 17 appearances for the Norway national team, including six in 2014 World Cup qualifying.
