ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber says he likes the St. Paul site identified by Minnesota team officials as their preference for an 18,500-seat stadium.

The Star Tribune reports Garber was in St. Paul Monday to tour the site and meet with Mayor Chris Coleman and Gov. Mark Dayton. The site has emerged as a possible location for the Minnesota major league soccer franchise awarded to Bill McGuire and his investment group.

Garber said in an interview on ESPN 1500 radio that he likes the location of the St. Paul site, about midway between the downtowns of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Garber noted the land is centrally located and on a light-rail line and Interstate 94. But he made it clear that St. Paul is not yet a done deal.
