Career Summary

Option declined following 2017 season.

An experienced, physical utility man able to do a job almost anywhere in the XI, the well-traveled Harris brings more than a decade of MLS know-how to his second stint with FC Dallas. Coach Oscar Pareja has expressed his trust in the longtime St. Kitts & Nevis international's ability to play multiple roles, but has primarily used him as an fullback in FCD's high-tempo system of late. Harris became the first player from his small Caribbean nation to sign for MLS when he joined Real Salt Lake in 2006.

INTERNATIONAL: Represented Saint Kitts & Nevis at the U-13, U-15, U-17, U-20, and U-23 Olympic levels. Made his senior international debut for the "Sugar Boyz" as a 15-year-old in 2000. Has represented his country at the top level 60 times and scored 14 international goals.

OUTSIDE MLS: Has played abroad in England and Spain with Newcastle United, Cadiz CF and Club Deportivo Linares.

NOTES: Married with three daughters.
