Houston Dynamo co-owner Oscar De La Hoya is keen to bring a big-name Mexican to his MLS club. "We'd like to have a player with name recognition, a high-calibre Hispanic player, preferably Mexican," De La Hoya told a mostly Latino media contingent on the weekend. "We're working on that. I don't know when we will be able to do that, but hopefully sooner rather than later."

De La Hoya, who attended the Dynamo's 3-2 preseason win over the Montreal Impact at Robertson Stadium, said he did not have a particular player in mind.

"When the time comes, we'll sit down with the front office and coach (Dominic) Kinnear and make a decision," said De La Hoya, who co-owns the Dynamo alongside AEG and Brener International.
