- Andrew Jacobson, Trade
The deals just keep on coming for FC Dallas and honestly I don’t see them stopping here with this news today. The club has announced they have acquired midfielder Andrew Jacobson from the Philadelphia Union in exchange for the club’s second round natural selection in the 2013 Major League Soccer SuperDraft,
“I’m very happy to have Andrew join FC Dallas,” said head coach Schellas Hyndman. “He’s a very good player, a center midfielder who will also go back in defense. He brings size to the team, but he’s also got very good soccer feet and might seem like a 5’10” player rather than his actual 6’2”. He comes from a great program under Kevin Grimes at Cal, and I see him contributing to this team immediately.”
This marks the second deal for FC Dallas this week, earlier they had sent defender Heath Pearce to Chivas USA. I see Jacobson getting time in the midfield behind veteran Daniel Hernandez or second-year player Eric Alexander. But this is a good depth sort of pick up for the club and one that is really cheap (he made the league minimum at $40k last year).
I also see this as a sign that Bruno Guarda’s time in Dallas could be up as well.
FC Dallas also announced the signing of their sixth Home Grown signing earlier today too. They inked 16-year old keeper Richard Sanchez to a Home Grown deal. I suspect the club won’t be done making deals here either. With a trip to Orlando coming up the roster will likely see another move take place once the club returns from the Disney tournament.
