Major League Soccer continues to gain a head of steam when it comes to improving the quality of its players by announcing that U.S. Men’s National Team staple of the past few years DaMarcus Beasley has transferred to the Houston Dynamo. This announcement has come just a week or so after the announcement by USMNT players Graham Zusi and Matt Besler that they would remain in MLS as members of Sporting Kansas City.

Houston will be trading a good player to Toronto FC, Warren Creavalle, in return for the allocation spot and the allocation money necessary to bring in Beasley. Creavalle has a bright future in MLS, but Houston needs some help on defense immediately – this was a necessary trade for the immediate benefit of the club. The announcement of this deal was first made by Darrell Lovell (@DarrellLovell) who is a beat writer covering the Dynamo for MLSSoccer.com.

Beasley, although getting on in age, will be a key member of the Dynamo for years to come. Houston has been hemorrhaging goals lately, and the addition of the World Cup defender should shore up that defense just in time to make a playoff run in a somewhat weak Eastern Conference. Beasley will be joining fellow USMNT player Brad Davis in Houston and should form the “spine” necessary to lead Houston to success in the next few years.

Rumors also have another World Cup player possibly coming to Houston; keep checking StoppageTimeSoccer.net to find out this news as soon as it has broken and is confirmed.
