Houston signs Driver on loan

The Houston Dynamo acquired English midfielder Andrew Driver on loan from Scottish Premier League side Hearts, the club announced on Wednesday.

The signing is pending the receipt of Driver's P-1 visa and International Transfer Certificate.

Driver, 25, made 168 appearances and scored 19 goals in seven seasons with Hearts. The Oldham native made 28 appearances for the Jambos this season, including two in the Europa League, tallying two goals and an assist.

"Andrew is good at taking people on, he crosses a good ball and can take set pieces," said Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear. "He is a hard-working player and I think he will definitely fit in with the team."

Driver is a wide player who can feature on left or right side of midfield. He will add depth to a crowded midfield that already includes Brad Davis, Boniek Garcia, Ricardo Clark, Adam Moffat, Luiz Camargo and Barnes.

"I am very excited about the opportunity to come and play for the Dynamo," Driver said. "I have followed MLS over the years and Houston has stood out as one of the top teams. I know a lot of success has been because of the work of Dominic Kinnear, so I am delighted to have the chance to learn from him and improve as a player under him."
