I believe this deal has been in the works for a few days but now it is a little more official. FC Dallas has signed Honduran forward/midfielder Marvin Chávez on loan from CD Marathon of Honduras’ Primera División. He will officially join the team pending a medical exam and receipt of his International Transfer Card (ITC) and P1 work visa.

Chavez has earned 18 caps with the Honduran national team and most recently played in the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament.

Not exactly sure why Dallas is adding more midfielders. From what I’m being told he will be a midfielder with Dallas and not a striker. My guessing this is a deal to help with the injury of Alvaro Sanchez.
