Houston Dynamo announce contract extentions with four players

Star winger Brad Davis and goalkeeper Tally Hall were among the four players Houston locked up for the future.
The Houston Dynamo have announced contract extensions for four players Wednesday, as midfielders Brad Davis and Adam Moffat and goalkeepers Tally Hall and Tyler Deric will remain with the club for the foreseeable future. Per league policy, details of the contracts were not disclosed.

“I am very happy that these four players decided to re-sign and stay in Houston,” Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear said. “It makes us a stronger team for many years to come.”

Davis and Hall are two of Houston's most important players. Davis, 31, has been with the Dynamo since the club arrived in Houston in 2006 and has been voted team MVP four consecutive seasons. The left-footed midfielder was MVP runner-up in 2011 and is a five-time MLS All-Star.

Hall, 27, has been mostly stellar since taking over as starting goalkeeper before the 2011 season. He was named an All-Star last season, and set an individual franchise record with 12 regular season shutouts in 2012. The Dynamo have advanced to MLS Cup in both of his seasons as starter since taking over for former Canadian international Pat Onstad.

Moffat, 26, joined Houston from Portland in a 2011 midseason trade, and has become a valuable member of the team's central midfield, starting all 10 playoff games since his arrival. He's become known for his long-range efforts, including a belter scored against Sporting Kansas City in this year's playoffs.

Deric is the first Dynamo academy player signed to a homegrown contract, and has served as the team's backup goalkeeper in recent seasons, getting playing experience in the CONCACAF Champions League.
