After a long search, the Houston Dynamo have added a forward that they hope can bring stability and consistent goalscoring to their front line.
Honduran striker Carlos Costly has officially joined the Dynamo on loan from Mexican club Atlas through the end of the season. The 29-year-old Costly has scored 18 times in 48 caps for Honduras, and there's a chance he's available for this weekend's match with the Philadelphia Union, pending the approval of his P-1 visa and arrival of his international transfer certificate. Costly might not be the only signing Houston makes, either.
The Houston Chronicle is reporting that the club is on the verge of announcing the capture of 24-year-old Brazilian midfielder Luiz Camargo.
Here are a couple of more items from around MLS:
RODGERS OUT AT LEAST THREE WEEKS
New York Red Bulls and U.S. national team forward Juan Agudelo is sure to get the lion's share of minutes aside Thierry Henry for the foreseeable future.
Luke Rodgers has been ruled out for at least the next three weeks, and possibly the remainder of the season, with a nagging heel injury that may require surgery.
He will be reevaluated before the team determines whether surgery is necessary. If he has to go that route, then his breakout season, during which he has scored six goals and assisted on three others, will come to an end.
CARAGLIO AVAILABLE FOR REVS
New England Revolution Designated Player Milton Caraglio received his international transfer certificate and will be available for selection against Chivas USA on Saturday, the club announced on its official Twitter feed.
The 22-year-old Argentine could be in for more minutes right away than perhaps previously expected, as Revolution striker Rajko Lekic is nursing a toe injury that could force Caraglio into a bigger role in his debut.
What do you think of the Dynamo's moves? Do you think Agudelo will rise to the challenge as a starter in New York? How much of an immediate impact do you see Caraglio having for New England?
