- Drew Moor, Kenny Cooper, New Contracts
FC Dallas defender Drew Moor has signed a new four year contract with the club according to Soccer America and later confirmed by one of my sources.
Moor is one of club’s most consistent and reliable players, something not to many people have been able to do on that backline over the last few years. I like that the club is investing in the future of its defense and are not going back out to sign some wasted talent to play in the back.
Plus the fact that he won’t be bolting off to Europe (a la Clarence Goodson) is good to see for those who want to keep the young American talent around in the league these days.
No official word on what his new deal says he will be paid or what exact details are in the contract.
Hopefully that means Kenny Cooper is next on the contract situation. Most figured he would be first and to a degree he is but things have stalled out from what I hear. Dallas is preparing to do something soon with all the allocation money that they’ve collected this season. I wouldn’t be shocked to see them toss most of that into a contract for Cooper.
No word officially what the club is planning to do with that allocation money. Most hope that it will be spent on keeping Cooper.
