It has been speculated for a couple of days, and as the rumors hit yesterday evening pinning down the rumored player as Luis Garrido. The player joins Houston Dynamo upon finalization of his visa.

Head Coach, Dominic Kinnear stated, "I think he is a good player. He has a good amount of bite in the middle of the field, good energy and is a good passer of the ball. We have watched him for a few years in the CONCACAF Champions League and World Cup qualifiers, and he showed well in the World Cup. We think he is a player that will fit in with the way we play and it a good opportunity to bring him here."

"I'm excited to add our second World Cup veteran to the club in the last two days. We think Luis will be an important player for us. With Brad, Boniek, DaMarcus, Rico and Luis we now have five players with World Cup experience in the midfield," Chris Canetti said.
