Commerce City, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - The Colorado Rapids sent midfielder
Hendry Thomas to FC Dallas on Wednesday in exchange for allocation money.
Thomas joined the Rapids during the 2012 campaign and started the final eight
games of the season for the club before making 27 starts and notching two
goals with one assist last term.
The Honduras international began his playing career with Olimpia in the
Honduran first division in 2001, while he also made 49 appearances for Wigan
in the English Premiership prior to joining the Rapids.
"The allocation money that we've gotten in this deal will give us flexibility
to continue adding strength and depth to our squad," said Rapids technical
director Paul Bravo. "We had negotiated with Hendry during the offseason but
ultimately we decided to move in other directions, so we're glad to get value
in return at this point. He was an important part of our team over the last
two years, and we want to thank him for his professionalism and contributions
to our club."
Colorado also signed a pair of players on Wednesday with goalkeeper Joe Nasco
joining the club from the Atlanta Silverbacks in the NASL, while midfielder
Jared Watts was signed after being selected with the 33rd overall pick in the
2014 MLS SuperDraft.
