In his most recent "Canetti's Corner," Dynamo president Chris Canetti confirmed that the club is close to signing Jamaican national team center back Jermaine Taylor. He said:
We are on the verge of signing Jamaican national team center back Jermaine Taylor. He arrived in town today as we look to complete the deal. Jermaine would give Dom added depth and multiple options in the back (four of them being newcomers). The defenders include Bobby Boswell, Mike Chabala, Hunter Freeman, Jordan Graye, Andrew Hainault, Eddie Robinson, and Kofi Sarkodie.
This is great news for Dynamo fans and could be the final component the defense needs ahead of the 2011 season. The details of this deal will be made available as soon as an official announcement is made by the Houston Dynamo.
