Houston Dynamo have pulled off a major coup by extending the contracts of three key players.
The MLS club have confirmed that Giles Barnes, Will Bruin and Tyler Deric have all penned new deals to remain at the BBVA Compass Stadium. Per club and league policy, terms of the transactions were not disclosed.
Former Derby County, West Bromwich Albion and Doncaster Rovers midfielder Barnes was thrilled to commit himself to the Dynamo despite the fact they experienced a difficult season under new head coach Owen Coyle.
“I knew there would be a bedding-in period with Owen coming in and trying to enforce his ideas," Barnes said.
“I was encouraged with everything happening during the season even though the results weren't always the best.
“We've got a lot of young players, and it looks like we're keeping a lot of core young players. The signing of Will and Tyler is good news for the organization."
Striker Bruin added: “Obviously you want to keep a core. I was talking to Giles and Tyler and all the guys that are already signed and we all believe and are all on the same page."
