Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Seattle Sounders FC acquired midfielder Adam Moffat from the Houston Dynamo on Friday in exchange for midfielder Servando Carrasco and a 2014 second-round selection in the MLS SuperDraft.

Moffat was enjoying a career season for the Dynamo with three goals in 26 appearances, including 24 starts, and he will add to an already strong midfield in Seattle.

The 27-year-old was a member of the Columbus team that captured the 2008 MLS Cup under current Sounders coach Sigi Schmid, and he also appeared in a pair of MLS Cup finals with Houston in 2011 and 2012.

"I have known Adam since 2007, when I brought him to the Crew," said Schmid. "He was a member our MLS championship team in Columbus and brings a fantastic attitude, has experience running the midfield, and a great shot from distance. Although it is difficult to see Servando leave, I am excited to welcome Adam to our team."

A veteran of seven MLS seasons, Moffat has posted career totals of 12 goals and six assists in 110 games for Columbus, Portland and Houston.

Carrasco was selected by the Sounders with the 27th overall pick in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft, and he went on make 40 appearances, including 22 starts in his three seasons with the club.

The 25-year-old started 13 games this season for Seattle and played in 19 games overall, collecting both his first MLS goal and assist.
