The Houston Dynamo may have just found someone capable of filling the void left behind by centerback Bobby Boswell.
Less than a week after allowing Boswell to leave the club via Stage 1 of the MLS Re-Entry Draft, the Dynamo announced they acquired the rights to central defender David Horst from the Portland Timbers via a trade on Tuesday. Houston gave up a natural fourth round pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft to land the 28-year-old Horst.
Horst, who is 6-foot-4 and was drafted by Real Salt Lake in the first round of the 2008 MLS SuperDraft, has played in 42 games in his six-year career. He was limited to just two appearances for the Timbers in 2013 due to injury.
What do you think of this deal? Do you see Horst starting for the Dynamo in 2013? Hoping Houston makes a move for another centerback?
