HOW ACQUIRED: Traded from FC Dallas to Minnesota United on Jan. 21, 2020 for a third-round pick in the 2021 MLS SuperDraft.
Boasting a strong first touch and good speed, Hayes is developing into a legitimate box-to-box threat in MLS. Last year, he had two assists in 19 matches (eight starts) and should supply depth in 2020.
COLLEGE: Played four years at Wake Forest, where he locked down a starting spot in his sophomore year. Played a total of 71 games for the Demon Deacons, registering 15 goals and 15 assists in his NCAA career. Named an NSCAA First Team All-American in 2016 as Wake Forest finished as runners-up in the College Cup.
