Garrido signs with Houston, Bengtson loaned out

[MLS TRANSACTIONS] Houston Dynamo acquired 23-year-old midfielder Luis Garrido, who started two games for Honduras at the World Cup, on loan from Olimpia.
In another loan deal involving a Honduran World Cup player, the New England Revolution has sent Jerry Bengtson to Belgrano in Argentina.

Garrido, a central midfielder, has 22 caps for Los Catrachos, including 11 starts in qualifying matches for the 2014 World Cup. He also played at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

His signing gives the struggling Dynamo more help in midfield. It traded central midfielder Warren Creavalle in the deal with Toronto FC that allowed it to sign DaMarcus Beasley.

“I think he is a good player,” said Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear in a statement. “He has a good amount of bite in the middle of the field, good energy and is a good passer of the ball. We have watched him for a few years in the Concacaf Champions League and World Cup qualifiers, and he showed well in the World Cup. We think he is a player that will fit in with the way we play; it’s a good opportunity to bring him here.”

Bengtson was signed as a Designated Player in 2012 but never fit in at New England. He scored just four goals in 36 MLS appearances. This season, he started only one game as he dropped on the Revs' depth chart behind new arrivals Patrick Mullins and Teal Bunbury.
