The Houston Dynamo announced the trade of middle fielder Adam Moffat to the Seattle Sounders for Servando Carrasco and a 2014 MLS SuperDraft second round pick. The trade was announced Friday September 13, 2013 prior to the team's departure for Philadelphia.
Gone are the "Moffat Rockets" which of late has proven to be the Dynamo's only scoring punch. Moffat tallied the last two road goals for the Dynamo in a 2-1 win over the New England Revolution on July 13.
Moffat acquired via trade with the Portland Timbers in 2011 became a stalwart midfielder whose aggressive style of play helped the Dynamo to consecutive MLS Cups in 2011 and 2012.
Since joining Seattle, Carrasco, a 25 year old midfielder, has made 13 starts in 19 games with the Sounders this season. The San Diego native will join the team in Philadelphia for Saturday's match against the Union at PPL Park..
“Servando is a smart player who’s versatile and good on the ball”, said Dynamo Head Coach Dominic Kinnear. “We also think he is a good player in MLS who can really help us endure a busy schedule. With the games we've seen him play for Seattle, he can play central or he can play wide. This is a difficult move because we know how popular Adam is, not only with the fans, but also with the coaching staff.”
