The San Jose Clash has traded midfielder Dominic Kinnear to the Tampa Bay Mutiny for midfielder Martin Vasquez. Vasquez, 34, had four goals and three assists for the Mutiny in 1997. He had five goals and six assists in the inaugural MLS campaign, and he played in the first MLS All-Star game. Prior to joining MLS, he spent eight seasons playing in Mexico. He has made seven appearances for the U.S. national team since obtaining American citizenship, and is currently recovering from surgery to repair a knee injury suffered while training with the national team in Florida. He is expected to be recovered by mid-March. "Martin knows what it takes to win," said Clash head coach Brian Quinn. "He can fill the defensive midfielder's role for us, or he can play sweeper." In the 30-year-old Kinnear, Tampa Bay receives a playmaker with 56 caps. He played in 28 games for San Jose last year, tallying two goals and four assists. Kinnear played with Colorado in the inaugural MLS season. "We're delighted to be able to acquire a player the calibre of Dominic Kinnear," said Mutiny GM Nick Sakiewicz. "We have had our eye on this player for quite some time. He is a veteran with tremendous experience, and we expect him to make significant contributions to our team this year."
