A report out of Honduras claims there will be another addition to the Houston Dynamo's Catrachos' contingent, though the club suggested a move may not be as certain.

El Once reported on Friday that forward Darixon Vuelto will be on his way to the Dynamo for the 2018 season from Honduran side Real España. The 20-year-old has scored 10 goals in 28 appearances since joining the team.

When contacted by MLSsoccer.com, the Dynamo indicated no signing is imminent. But a spokesperson confirmed that the club has scouted him, although they don’t currently hold his Discovery rights in MLS.

Vuelto, who told Diario El Pais he was "a step away" from completing the deal with Houston, is considered a rising star of Honduran soccer. In 2016 he went on loan to Spanish second-division side Tenerife, but never got a first-team appearance with the team. Vuelto began his career in 2013 with Victoria, and played in the CONCACAF Champions League there.

If Vuelto joins the Dynamo he would be the latest Honduran to join the MLS outfit, and would join compatriots Alberth Elis, Romell Quioto and Boniek Garcia.
