Houston, TX (Sports Network) - The Houston Dynamo acquired English
midfielder Andrew Driver on loan from Scottish Premier League side Hearts, the
club announced on Wednesday.
The signing is pending the receipt of Drivers P-1 visa and International
Driver, 25, made 168 appearances and scored 19 goals in seven seasons with
Hearts. The Oldham native made 28 appearances for the Jambos this season,
including two in the Europa League, tallying two goals and an assist.
"Andrew is good at taking people on, he crosses a good ball and can take set
pieces," said Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear. "He is a hard-working player
and I think he will definitely fit in with the team."
Driver is a wide player who can feature on left or right side of midfield. He
will add depth to a crowded midfield that already includes Brad Davis, Boniek
Garcia, Ricardo Clark, Adam Moffat, Luiz Camargo and Barnes.
"I am very excited about the opportunity to come and play for the Dynamo,"
Driver said. "I have followed MLS over the years and Houston has stood out as
one of the top teams. I know a lot of success has been because of the work of
Dominic Kinnear, so I am delighted to have the chance to learn from him and
improve as a player under him."
