FC Dallas sign Brazilian forward Getterson

The MLS summer transfer window is officially heating up. On Saturday, FC Dallas announced that they've signed forward Getterson Alves dos Santos, on loan from J. Malucelli, pending receipt of his ITC and P-1 visa.

J. Malucelli plays in the Brazilian first division, and during their 2016 season, Getterson scored five goals in 13 games. The club also finished second in their table last year.

Fun MLS fact: Though it's got only a population of about 15,000 both Getterson and the New York Red Bulls' Felipe hail from the same Brazilian town, Engenheiro Beltrão, in the state of Paraná.
