Houston Dynamo completes signing of Teenage Hadebe, first DP import since 2017

The Houston Dynamo completed the transfer of Zimbabwean defender Teenage Hadebe as its first import signed as a Designated Player since 2017.

Hadebe, 25, comes from Turkey's Yeni Malatyaspor, where he spent two seasons. Previously, he played for Kaizer Chiefs in South Africa.

The signing is the Dynamo's first major move since Ted Segal, a New York-area real estate developer and financier, became its majority owner.

“Teenage is a naturally left footed center back with speed, athleticism and an imposing presence,” said Dynamo senior vice president and general manager Matt Jordan. “We are pleased that in the prime of his career, at 25-years-old, he chose to be a part our club. We are confident he has the qualities to be successful in our system.”

Before Hadebe's signing, the only DP on the Dynamo roster was Darwin Quintero, acquired from Minnesota United in 2020. The Colombian forward has played only 89 minutes in 2021.
