- Luis Angel Landin
The Houston Dynamo will announce the signing of Mexican striker Luis Angel Landin on loan from Mexican side Cruz Azul this afternoon, according to reports coming out of Houston.
According to Bernardo Fallas of the Houston Chronicle, Landin will count as a designated player for the Dynamo, marking the first Designated Player in the club’s history. The deal will also be a 16-month loan.
Interesting to see Houston use it’s DP spot with Landin. Back in the winter they were targeting him, probably for the same kind of deal. I said yesterday that this could be a deal that puts Houston over the top and gets the Dynamo as an instant favorite out west to get to MLS Cup this year.
What do you make of Landin and the Dynamo? Surprised to see Houston finally use it’s DP spot?
