Houston Dynamo FC announced today that forward Sebas Ferreira will join Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama in Brazil on loan for the remainder of the year.
Ferreira joined the Dynamo on Jan. 18, 2022, in a full transfer from Club Libertad Asunción in Paraguay. The Asunción, Paraguay native scored 13 goals and tallied three assists in 42 appearances for Houston in regular season play since joining the League.
“This has been a challenging year for Sebas, and we are happy to find a solution that gives him an opportunity for more playing time in a top league for the next five months,” said Dynamo general manager, Pat Onstad. “Sebas had a difficult time earning minutes early this season meanwhile our group has been above the playoff line for most of the season, while also advancing to the semifinals of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. We started the season with a different plan for Sebas, but situations changed. We hope this time away is good for him and we look forward to welcoming him back in January.”
The forward joined the Dynamo after two years with Libertad, where he finished with 34 goals and 12 assists in 79 appearances in all competitions for the club. That includes appearances in both the Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana.
Vasco da Gama competes in Brazil’s Serie A, the topflight in the country’s league system. The team is one of 10 Brazilian sides to win the Copa Libertadores and they have also won five domestic titles in the first division.
