    HOUSTON -- The Houston Dynamo announced on Friday that it traded Adam Moffat to the Seattle Sounders in exchange for midfielder Servando Carrasco.

    Moffat, an industrious midfielder, joined the Dynamo from the Portland Timbers in July 2011.  He played a key role in Houston reaching consecutive MLS Cup finals in 2011 and 2012 and has one career CONCACAF Champions League goal.

    In his 19 league games with Seattle this season, Carrasco has made 13 starts and scored one goal.

    “Servando is a smart player who’s versatile and good on the ball,” said Houston head coach Dominic Kinnear.  “We also think he is a good player in MLS who can really help us endure a busy schedule.  With the games we've seen him play for Seattle, he can play central or he can play wide.  This is a difficult move because we know how popular Adam is, not only with the fans, but also with the coaching staff.”

    The Dynamo are currently top the Group 1 table in the Champions League with four points in two games.  It returns to action in the competition on September 25, when DIRECTV W Connection visits BBVA Compass Stadium.
