The Houston Dynamo may not have a coach yet, but that isn’t stopping them from making moves.
The Dynamo traded midfielder Andrew Driver to D.C. United on Monday, sending the Scottish winger to the nation’s capital in exchange for goalkeeper Joe Willis and defender Samuel Inkoom. As part of the trade, Houston also sent D.C. a fourth-round pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft.
The 27-year-old Driver spent two seasons in Houston, appearing in 60 regular season games, scoring three goals and tallying two assists after joining the Dynamo on loan from Scottish club Heart of Midlothian ahead of the 2013 season.
Driver, who appeared in all 34 regular season games for the Dynamo in 2014, departs Houston as the club eyes Scottish-born Owen Coyle for its open head coaching position.
Willis (pictured at right) backed up 2014 MLS Goalkeeper of the Year Bill Hamid in D.C. for the last four years, appearing in 23 league games during his tenure with the Black-and-Red. He’ll add depth in the net for the Dynamo, who made their long-reported trade of starting goalkeeper Tally Hall to Orlando official on Monday.
D.C. send Inkoom away just three months after they acquired the Ghanaian defender. The 25-year-old Inkoom appeared in five games across all competitions for D.C., recording one assist in his two MLS appearances and adding two more helpers in three CONCACAF Champions League games.
