Is USMNT left back Demarcus Beasley headed to the Houston Dynamo? Things are pointing in that direction as the Dynamo announced the trading of utility player Warren Creavalle to Toronto FC in exchange for the top spot in the MLS allocattion order and allocation money. Toronto received Houston's No. 14 spot in the order.
The announcement in the last hour puts Houston in a position to sign Beasley who is the only player to have played for four different U.S. World Cup teams. The 32 year old most recently played for Mexico's Puebla FC club is primarily a left midfielder with experience at left back.
Creavalle, 23, is an up and coming versatile talent who appeared in 54 games and six playoff games during his three seasons in Houston. The former was University of Central Florida midfielder was the team's second round pick in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft. Creavalle started 16 games for the Houston this season.
Beasley’s availability makes the move one that the team could not afford to make if they are going to make a playoff run. Stuck in ninth place in the Eastern Conference standings with 14 games remaining, adding another veteran voice and one that teamed with Dynamo captain Brad Davis in Brazil earlier this month makes sense and reinforces the team’s commitment to winning.
Head coach Dominic Kinnear and the Houston top brass have claimed that they will do whatever is necessary to make this team better and now they are turning those words into action with a group that is on the precipice worst season in franchise history.
"We are always looking to improve our team," said Kinnear following the team's most recent performance.
A sentiment that has been echoed since the beginning of training camp is now coming to fruition.
