New Signing - Hendry Thomas

Today the Rapids announced the rumored signing of Honduran midfielder Hendry Thomas. Thomas is 27 years old and has played for Olympia in Honduras and Wigan in the EPL. He spent the last 3 seasons in England getting 55 appearances before falling out of favor with the current coaching staff. Looking at descriptions from Wigan fans Hendry appears to be a player in the same mold as Pablo Mastroeni. I'm sure Bravo and Pareja are bringing him in hoping he can fill the hole at the back of midfield freeing them up from the two d-mid formations they've been using recently. Based on reports and sources it sounds like he's under contract for this year and the team already has him signed to an option for next year.

Also today the Rapids said they have 25 year old American midfielder Anton Peterlin on trial. In 2009 Peterlin was surprisingly signed by Everton from the Ventura County Fusion of the PDL. After a year with the Everton reserves he moved to League One Plymouth Argyle where he got 12 appearances. After they went into administration and were relegated he moved to League One Walsall last season where he made 31 appearances.
