Veteran goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann has re-signed with Seattle Sounders FC, the club announced Wednesday.

Hahnemann, 41, started four matches in the 2013 regular season, allowing four goals and going 2-2. Since joining the Sounders in September 2012, he has made nine appearances across all competitions with a 1.12 goals-against average.

“He will continue to add veteran leadership and has proven to be solid between the posts,” sporting director Chris Henderson said in a news release. “Marcus has had a fantastic career for club and country, and we are proud he will be staying with his hometown team.”

Hahnemann is a Seattle native who attended Seattle Pacific University and began his professional career in 1994 with the A-League Sounders. He went on to spend 13 seasons in the English Premier League and has nine caps for the United States national team.

He is expected to join goalkeepers Stefan Frei and Josh Ford when the Sounders report to preseason camp Jan. 25.
