- Summer Transfers, Victor Sikora
Some more Dallas news here this afternoon (and I have more on the way too). According to Goal.com, FC Dallas has signed Dutch midfielder Victor Sikora. The Dutch midfielder will be with the club for the rest of the season with an club-option for three years.
The 30-year old former Ajax product appears to be just the wing play that FC Dallas coaches have been looking for to fully switch to the 4-4-2 formation that worked so well last weekend against the LA Galaxy.
After talking to a lot of people around the club and some of the media last weekend about Sikora this seems like a good deal. I like how the club got smart on this one and signed him for the rest of the year with options afterward. I think it is safe to say they’ve learned their lessons from the few busts they’ve signed over the last couple years (Denilson, Shaka Hislop).
He will play on either side of the wings and word has it he will probably be the best crosser the team has. If he is as good some are saying I would expect him to easily tack on a few assists before the year is out.
Once I get more details on his salary and what not I will pass it along to you all.
