TUKWILA, Wash. (AP) -- The Seattle Sounders have completed an agreement to loan forward Fredy Montero to Colombia's Millonarios for the 2013 season.

Seattle also said Monday that the 25-year-old had signed a multiyear contract with the Major League Soccer team.

Montero has been with Seattle since it started play in 2009 and leads the Sounders with 60 goals and 43 assists in 160 games

"Fredy has been a fantastic player and pro," Sounders owner Adrian Hanauer said in a statement. "We hope this move helps Fredy's chances of being called up to the Colombian national team."
