The Dynamo have finalized a deal to bring former club and country standout Ricardo Clark back to Houston.

After agreeing to the terms of a deal with Clark last Friday, the Dynamo received the final paperwork and an international transfer certificate on Thursday to bring the World Cup veteran back from German Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt through the end of the 2014 season.

The Houston Dynamo defense enjoyed a near-perfect July. And in the middle of it all was defender Bobby Boswell.

It is a defensive effort that screams organization and cohesion, and the voice in the middle making it happen belongs to Boswell.
