Defender Hunter Freeman is leaving Norway and returning to the United States to play in MLS with the Houston Dynamo.

Freeman was acquired by the two-time MLS champions in a trade with the New York Red Bulls who had retained Freeman's rights while he was abroad in Norway.

The native Texan spent the 2009 and 2010 seasons at IK Start where he teamed up with compatriot and fellow defender Clarence Goodson to form one of the more aggressive and attacking teams in all of Scandinavia.

He started his professional career in MLS back in 2005 with the Colorado Rapids before moving on to stints with the Red Bulls and Toronto FC.

Freeman joins a Dynamo squad that is looking to rebuild after a poor 2010 season that saw them miss the playoffs for the first time since relocating from San Jose in 2006.

"I'm very happy to acquire Hunter," Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear said. "I've always liked the way he plays. He can play on the left or right, he likes to attack, and I enjoyed his company when I worked with him on a Generation Adidas trip. So I'm happy to see him come back to MLS and playing for us."

In his two years with Start, Freeman appeared in 51 matches and scored two goals.
