Dynamo To Sign Freeman

A short bit of news to start off this Friday. The Houston Chronicle is reporting the Houston Dynamo are set to sign defender Hunter Freeman today. The club reached a deal with the New York Red Bulls for Freeman’s MLS rights.

The 25-year old right back had been in Norway with IK Start the last couple of years. The Red Bulls had previously held his player rights when he left the league for Norway. No official word yet on what the Red Bulls will receive from the Dynamo. Don’t laugh but it will likely be a 4th round pick in a future SuperDraft based on how deals have gone this winter. If not that then some small allocation.

For a team that needed cover in defense this is a good start to their offseason. Freeman comes back to MLS after getting some playing time overseas.
