COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Columbus Crew have acquired forward Dominic Oduro from the Chicago Fire in exchange for midfielder Dilly Duka and the right of first refusal to former Crew midfielder Robbie Rogers.

Oduro will be added to the Crew's roster immediately. The 27-year-old Ghanaian scored 18 goals and assisted on five more in 66 regular-season games the last two years with the Fire. He also played five seasons with the Houston Dynamo, New York Red Bulls and FC Dallas.

The 23-year-old Duka played three seasons with the Crew, making 45 appearances with two goals and five assists.

Rogers was a member of the Crew from 2007-11, but joined English League Championship team Leeds United before going on loan to League One's Stevenage.
