HOUSTON -

Could there be a fifth professional sports team in the Bayou City?

The Dynamo is in talks with the National Women's Soccer League to land a franchise here in Houston. Nothing's firm, but there is interest.

"We're in discussion and exploration to bring a National Women's Soccer League team to Houston," said Dynamo President Chris Canetti. "It would be an expansion team to play at BBVA Compass Stadium, potentially next season or the season after that."

There are eight professional women's team throughout the country. Canetti said they still have a ways to go, but they are researching the possibility and want to make sure the move would help grow the sport of soccer in Houston.
