Houston Dynamo Getting Feilhaber

U.S. International midfielder Benny Feilhaber has not been getting much playing time with English Premier League cellar dwellers and relegation bait Derby County, despite solid perfromances for the U.S. Men's National Team. So the rumor is that MLS side Houston Dynamo have approached Derby about a possible loan of Feilhaber to the MLS Champs for the season.

If so, Feilhaber would likely see more playing time than pine time, and would give Feilhaber the chance to prove to Derby that he deserves more playing time. Plus he would be fit for the start of the Championship League for next year, assuming he doesn't get dealt during the summer transfer window. As an added bonus, playing for the MLS would keep him close to the U.S. which might consider him for one of the over age slots on the U.S. Olympic team, which is played by the U-23 team but three over age players are allowed.
