Victor Ulloa and Moises Hernandez - 2012 - two shot

FC Dallas part ways with Jose Salvatierra, Moises Hernandez

FC Dallas announced that they parted ways with a pair of defenders on Tuesday, as both Jose Salvatierra and Moises Hernandez have agreed to terminate their contracts with the club.

Salvatierra, 27, joined Dallas on a year-long loan from Costa Rican club Alajuelense on Dec. 16. He was expected to contribute at outside back for FCD this year, but the club said he failed his entrance physical.

“Unfortunately, Jose did not pass all the required physical fitness and medical exams,” FC Dallas technical director Fernando Clavijo said in a statement issued by the club. “We wish him the best of luck moving forward.”

Hernandez joined Dallas as a Homegrown player in July 2010. After not featuring at all in 2011, 2012 or 2013, he made 31 regular-season appearances in 2014 and 2015. He didn’t play at all for Dallas last year, making 26 appearances while spending the entire campaign on loan to NASL club Rayo OKC.

“For the last 14 months, we were trying to provide Moises with an environment he could grow as a player,” Clavijo said. “We were uncertain of his future and we mutually agreed to go our separate ways. We thank Moises for his contributions and wish him well in the future.”
