Tony Sanneh Signs With...

It looks like for the time being ex-USMNT player Tony Sanneh has signed with the Minnesota Thunder (USL-1). Sanneh has been without a team since being released by the Chicago Fire after the 2006 MLS season. Since then he's been linked with a couple MLS teams and spent time training with New York Red Bulls. Recently the Colorado Rapids traded the Chicago Fire a 4th round Superdraft pick for Sanneh's rights. Those only apply in the MLS. Sanneh's deal with the Thunder is said to be only a couple of weeks. That should give him and any MLS team interested in signing him time to work out a deal for his rights with the Rapids and bring him in before the MLS roster freeze date of September 14th.
