Former Hearts winger Andrew Driver has moved from Houston Dynamo to join DC United as part of the Major Soccer League annual draft.

The 27-year-old was exchanged for American goalkeeper Joe Willis and Ghana defender Samuel Inkroom.

Driver's switch was agreed ahead of Houston announcing Paisley-born Owen Coyle as their new head coach.

The midfielder spent two seasons with Dynamo, making 60 appearances and scoring three goals.

Driver joined Houston from Hearts on loan in 2013, with the deal becoming permanent later that year.

Having played for Scotland Under-16s, Driver featured for England Under-21s but then opted to switch back to Scotland at senior level.

He was found to be ineligible to play for Scotland when selected by then head coach Craig Levein, but the winger has not been chosen for the national squad since the residency rules were changed in 2010.

Driver will join his new club when the MLS season gets underway early next year.
