Je-Vaughn Watson traded to FC Dallas for 2015 SuperDraft pick


Jamaican midfielder Je-Vaughn Watson will move a bit further north after the Dynamo have traded him to FC Dallas.

The Houston Dynamo announced the trade of Jamaican midfielder Je-Vaughn Watson to FC Dallas for a second round 2015 MLS SuperDraft pick. With the trade, the Dynamo seemed to clear the way to move Hearts midfielder Andrew Driver to the club since Watson's move opens an international roster spot.

Earlier today, the Dynamo confirmed interest in Driver and could be set to make the move official in the coming days. Driver, who is left footed, but can work from either side of the field is expected to provide depth in the Houston midfield.

More moves are expected from the Dynamo in the coming days.
