Houston Dynamo signs Sebastian Ferreira for club record transfer fee

The Houston Dynamo acquired 23-year-old forward Sebastian Ferreira from Club Libertad in Paraguay.

Ferreira is the most expensive signing in Dynamo history and the first Designated Player acquired since Pat Onstad was named general manager in November.

Paraguayan media reported the transfer fee was $4.3 million.
 
In two years with Libertad, Ferreira won two league scoring titles and led the club to the 2021 Apertura championship last May. In 2020, he scored three goals to lead Libertad to the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores.

Before Libertad, Ferreira spent a season and a half with Atletico Morelia in Liga MX, where he scored 11 goals in 38 games.

“Sebastian is a high-potential attacker with an impressive scoring record in South America and Liga MX," said Onstad. "He also possesses the tenacity and selflessness that we are looking for in Houston Dynamo FC players."

    Good luck! It seems that there is no real game plan with the moves the Franchise makes.

    Strong comment.  They just aquire a proven MLS keeper in Clark and and a solid centerback from LAG, both of whom are well known players who fit the social profile mgt stated they seek while giving solidity to
    the back of the spine, and this new addition adds potential goals, another stated objective.  Proof will be on the pitch, and a measure of the coaching staffs ability in the MLS game and league comtext, but so far they are backing their talk.

    "No gameplan!" -- That is a weird comment.  Technical staff has been on a job a very short time. We don't have enough information to assess that.
