SEATTLE – The Seattle Sounders announced Thursday that they’ve signed forward Herculez Gomez to a contract.

The 33-year-old has 24 caps and six goals in international play with the U.S. national team, including three matches in the 2010 World Cup.

It’s not his first stint in Seattle. In 2003, Gomez played a season with the USL version of the Sounders.

"We're happy to add a player with Herculez's experience to our current roster," said Sounders general manager Garth Lagerwey. "He has done well in training and we look forward to seeing what he can bring to the team."
