The Seattle Sounders FC have acquired American forward Sammy Ochoa through the Major League Soccer allocation process.

The Sounders announced the acquisition on Friday. Ochoa was acquired after Seattle traded a 2012 third-round MLS SuperDraft pick to Chicago in order to move up in the allocation process.

The 24-year-old Ochoa signed with MLS earlier this week after spending the past five seasons playing for Mexico's Estudiantes Tecos. He trained with the Sounders in June and played in a reserve league game.

Ochoa also played for Seattle coach Sigi Schmid in 2005 at the FIFA under-20 World Cup.

Seattle also announced that goalkeeper Terry Boss has been called in by Puerto Rico for a pair of World Cup qualifying matches next week against St. Kitts and Canada.
