It's been a busy week for the Fire.
With the MLS transfer window closing today the club has announced the acquisition of midfielder Alvaro Fernandez from Seattle Sounders FC in exchange for allocation money. Recent talks of a loan move to Deportivo Cali apparently fell through and Seattle's addition of Christian Tiffert made it necessary to move of one three DP's on the club.
Fernandez scored 13 goals in 55 appearances for Seattle since joining MLS in 2010. He gives the Fire a different option on the wing but he has been a bit up and down over his tenure with the Sounders.
