Following their acquisition of DP attacker Alberth Elis on Tuesday, the Houston Dynamo are continuing their activity this offseason with two more signings nearing completion. Corey Roepken of the Houston Chronicle reported that Panama national team captain Adolfo Machado and Honduras starter Romell Quioto will soon be added to Houston’s roster.

Quioto, a teammate of Elis and Boniek Garcia in Honduras’s attack, is a striker and winger who currently plays for Honduran club Olimpia. The 25-year old has 27 caps for his national team and will be arriving on a full transfer.

Machado, 31, is a starting center back and captain of the Panama national team. With 45 international caps, he is an experienced leader who will join a thin group of defenders in Houston. He will arrive on loan from top Costa Rican club Saprissa having previously spent time in Honduras, Guatemala, and Panama.

Houston’s current roster, with the addition of these two players, now moves to 19 players. Elis and former Seattle left back Dylan Remick are the only other acquisitions made by the front office so far this offseason.
