Waterhouse's top striker Kenroy Howell secured a five-month loan agreement to Club Deportivo Dragon in the El Salvador premier football division.

Howell left the island yesterday morning to take up the contract.

Waterhouse general secretary Richard 'Spoon' McCallum told STAR Sports that Waterhouse recently came to an agreement with C D Dragon in El Salvador.

"They have taken the player on an initial loan agreement until December 2016," he said.

He also disclosed that should the club be impressed with the player, there could be a permanent deal to follow.

"Well, if the club is interested, he could land a permanent deal," McCallum informed.

"He (Howell) was one of our best performers last season. He was the club's top goalscorer, so he will definitely be missed," he added.

McCallum, who retired as Waterhouse goalkeeper last season and took up an executive post, further disclosed that this is the beginning of the club's new vision of getting young players overseas.

"We have a new focus, and that is to get young players deals overseas. This is the new direction for the club," the former national youth and senior team goalkeeper said.

Meanwhile, Waterhouse confirmed the appointment of Marvin Tate as head coach of the senior team for the upcoming Red Stripe Premier League season.

"He (Tate) will be working with physical coach Roy Thomas," McCallum said.

He also said no assistant coach has been named.

"There are several persons interested in the assistant coach position, so the club will make an announcement soon."
