Omar Cummings leaves Colorado for Houston
The number of Jamaicans that will be playing for beaten MLS Cup finalist Houston Dynamo next season has risen to three.
This after Omar Cummings was acquired by the Dynamo who sent midfielder Nathan Sturgis and allocation money to the Colorado Rapids in exchange for the dynamic Jamaican striker.
Cummings who has scored 7 goals in 28 appearances for the Jamaican national team, joins a Houston team fresh off a second consecutive appearance in the MLS Cup final.
The 30 year old during 6 seasons with Colorado compiled 39 goals and 27 assists.
His best years came in 2009 when he had 8 goals and 12 assists, and the following season in 2010 when he notched 14 goals and 3 assists to lead the rapids to the MLS Cup title.
He also led the team with 14 goals in 29 games after scoring eight goals to go with 12 assists in 2008. It was the type of season that had him a work permit away from a loan with the English Premier League team Aston Villa.
Last season he managed only 6 goals and 2 assists for the Rapids while enduring injuries that limited his playing time.
He now joins a Houston team that includes fellow Jamaicans Jermaine Taylor and Je-Vaughn Watson.
