Houston Dynamo Acquire David Horst From Portland Timbers

The Houston Dynamo announced earlier today that they acquired defender David Horst from the Portland Timbers. In return the Dynamo will send a natural 4th round pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft.

Horst, 28, was drafted 14th overall in the 2008 MLS SuperDraft by Real Salt Lake. Horst actually made his professional debut against the Dynamo in 2008, before being loaned to two different teams in 2009 and 2010. In 2010, the Timbers selected him in the Expansion Draft.

Horst has played in 42 different matches over 6 seasons in the MLS. In 2013, he only played two games after getting injured against the Dynamo in April. Horst underwent successful surgery to repair a displaced tibial plateau fracture of his right leg later in the season andis expected to be ready for this coming season.

Here’s what Dynamo President Chris Cannetti had to say about the newly acquired Horst.
