Honduras international Garrido joins Houston Dynamo

Houston Dynamo have confirmed the acquisition of Honduran midfielder Luis Garrido.

The 23-year old defensive midfielder has joined the MLS club from homeland outfit Olimpia and will be added to the Dynamo roster upon receipt of his P-1 Visa and international transfer certificate.

Garrido arrives at the BBVA Compass Stadium having appeared twice for Los Catrachos at the 2014 World Cup which came after a loan spell with Serbian club Red Star Belgrade in 2013.

Dynamo head coach Dom Kinnear was thrilled with the signing, saying that Garrido will bring with him plenty of stability in midfield for the Texan outfit.

"I think he is a good player," Kinnear told the club's official website.

"He has a good amount of bite in the middle of the field, good energy and is a good passer of the ball. We have watched him for a few years in the CONCACAF Champions League and World Cup qualifiers, and he showed well in the World Cup.

"We think he is a player that will fit in with the way we play and it a good opportunity to bring him here."

Garrido joins fellow Hondurans Boniek Garcia and Alexander Lopez at the Dynamo as well as other World Cup competitors DaMarcus Beasley, Brad Davis and Ricardo Clark.
