According to the Houston Chronicle’s Jose De Jesus Ortiz, the Houston Dynamo are in discussions with the New England Revolution for the services of midfielder Benny Feilhaber.
“Yeah, sure, the Dynamo are trying to get him. He’s a good player,” the MLS official said on the condition of anonymity.
Feilhaber, 26, was awarded to the Revolution according to the rules of the MLS’ returning USMNT player allocation order after Chivas USA and the Philadelphia Union both passed on him. He had been playing for AGF Aarhus, and has also seen time with Derby County and Hamburg SV.
The Dynamo have a history of strong midfielders with players like Stuart Holden and Ricardo Clark playing for the side, but have struggled to replace them as they’ve moved overseas the last few years. Feilhaber would fill a big need for the Dynamo as they’ve been lacking a few creative attacking pieces. Potentially joining up with last week’s transfer of Sergio Koke, he could make a big difference for the Dynamo attack.
No word yet on what the Dynamo would have to surrender to acquire Feilhaber.
