Sources: Houston Dynamo acquires Darwin Quintero from Minnesota United

The Houston Dynamo have acquired midfielder Darwin Quintero from Minnesota United, multiple sources have confirmed to ESPN.

The Loons will receive $300,000 of General Allocation Money (GAM) and $300,000 of Targeted Allocation Money (TAM) spread out evenly over the next two years, as well as utility player Marlon Hairston. Houston will also receive a third-round pick in the 2020 MLS SuperDraft.

The Athletic was the first to report the final details of the deal, while Ives Galarcep initially reported that Houston was the frontrunner to land Quintero.

Quintero would be the first acquisition of new Dynamo manager Tab Ramos.
