Houston Dynamo 2 acquire forward Exon Arzú on loan from Real C.D. España in Honduras 


HOUSTON (Feb. 21, 2024) - Houston Dynamo 2 have signed Honduran forward Exon Arzú on loan from Real Club Deportivo España in Honduras for the 2024 MLS NEXT Pro season. The loan is pending receipt of his international transfer certificate (ITC) and the forward will not occupy an international roster spot. Arzú holds a green card and will be listed as a domestic player.

Arzú joins Dynamo 2 after making 22 appearances for Real España since 2022 in the Liga Betcris de Honduras. The 19-year-old forward scored a goal in a 3-1 victory over Club Deportivo y Social Vida on Nov. 14, his second start for the team.

“We are excited to add an explosive and dynamic attacking player like Exon to our roster for the upcoming season. Our technical staff is looking forward to providing a competitive environment that will continue Exon’s development and yield results on the field,” Dynamo Assistant General Manager Nick Kowba said. “In addition to providing opportunities for domestic players and our academy, we are rebuilding the roster with international talents, leveraging our new analytics and scouting processes.”

Arzú has represented Honduras at the Under-20 level at several international competitions, including the 2023 U-20 FIFA World Cup and the 2023 Concacaf U-20 Championship. The striker made the starting XI in all three U-20 World Cup group stage matches against Gambia, South Korea and France. 

The forward was one of seven Dynamo 2 players that joined the Dynamo first team in Mexico for friendly matches against Chivas, Tecos and Leones Negros. He also traveled to Central Florida to join the Dynamo in the preseason friendly against Orlando City SC.
