Carlos Yaír "Carlo" Costly Molina (born 18 July 1982[1]) is a Honduran footballer who plays as a striker for FC Vaslui. He is a member of the Honduras national football team. Prior to his transfer to Europe, he played with Club Deportivo Platense where he managed to be the top scorer of Honduras Apertura 2006-07.

He is the son of national legend Anthony Costly. Costly's life is linked closely to the country of Mexico. His parents separated and his mother, soon after, married a Mexican native. Costly moved to Mexico City when he was 14 years old and lived there for the following 11 years where he kicked off his soccer career. He had spells in the Mexican league with reserve teams of Celaya, Morelia, Atlas and Pumas.[2]

He moved back to Honduras where the path to his internationally successful career began. Despite leaving Mexico, Costly still keeps a house in the state of Nayarit.[2]

He was linked in the press with a move to Football League Championship side Plymouth Argyle, and supposedly linked with League One side Leeds United, before being reported to be on trial with Premier League side Birmingham City.[3] Costly remained at PGE GKS Bełchatów for the time being.

In January 2009, Costly joined Birmingham City of the Football League Championship (the second tier of English football) on loan until the end of the 2008–09 season.[4] He made his debut for the club on 7 February 2009, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 1–1 draw with Burnley.[5] The loan was not made permanent at the end of the season.[6]

On 24 January 2010, Costly was bought by FC Vaslui for transfer fee of 500,000 €. He signed a 3,5-years contract.[7]
