Seitz Trade Details

This is being reported by Michael C. Lewis at the Deseret News:

"League sources said RSL received north of $200,000 in allocation money for Seitz -- allocation money can be used to sign other players -- which was about three times as much as several teams dangled in trade offers during the season. Team officials and Seitz all declined to comment until the league officially approves the deal."

If this is true, then wow! About a year and a half ago there was alot of buzz around Seitz after the U-20 World Cup, but this is a rather large allocation and will give Real Salt Lake some good acquisition dollars to use as they wade into the foreign markets over the next couple of months in search of a striker to replace Yura Movsisyan.
