Another Nevada native, in this case Las Vegas, the Sounders homegrown player is eager to establish himself on the team. Although only 20 years old, this is the fifth season for Danny Leyva, who can count himself unlucky to not have yet scored for the first team.
A fan favorite who the supporters appreciate for his silky skills and shot accuracy. He proved his willingness to get first team minutes by agreeing to a loan to the Colorado Rapids last season. This would probably be the solution most fans would like to see.
