The Houston Dynamo officially saw the departure of longtime goalkeeper Tally Hall Monday, but the club was quick to take a step toward bolstering its current crop of goalkeepers.
The Dynamo announced Monday that the club had acquired goalkeeper Joe Willis and defender Samuel Inkoom from D.C. United in exchange for midfielder Andrew Driver and a 2016 fourth-round pick in the MLS Draft.
Willis, who appeared in 23 games over the past four seasons, will join homegrown goalkeeper Tyler Deric to lead the Dynamo’s goalkeeper corps. Meanwhile, Inkoom, who joined D.C. United in September and made two MLS appearances, will bring a wealth of experience to the Dynamo having made 46 international appearances for Ghana in a career that has made stops at FC Basel (Switzerland), FC Dnipro (Ukraine), SC Bastia (France) and Platanias F.C. (Greece).
In exchange, D.C. United acquire Driver, who appeared in 60 regular season games during his time with the Dynamo. Acquired from Scotland’s Heart of Midlothian in 2013, Driver scored three goals and added two assists during his time with the Dynamo.
