TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Reports
FC Dallas’ technical staff is in flux, but the club continues to make moves as the MLS offseason hot stove cranks up, with The Athletic’s Paul Tenorio reporting two significant midfield moves in the offing for the North Texans.
League source said FC Dallas is set to sign Honduran NT midfielder Bryan Acosta, currently with Tenerife in Spain. #FCD would not confirm or deny, but team source said "we are always looking to improve our roster and are focused on building the best team possible for 2019." #MLS— Paul Tenorio (@PaulTenorio) December 11, 2018
One of FCD’s legion of Homegrown Players, Victor Ulloa has been a core member of the club’s first team for the past five years. Typically a defensive-minded center mid also capable of filling a box-to-box role, the Wylie, Texas native lost his starting spot during stretches of the 2016 and 2017 campaigns before regaining regular minutes this year.
Acosta is a talented central midfielder with ample international experience with Honduras. Currently with Tenerife in Spain’s second division, the 25-year-old may have gained knowledge of FCD via his Catrachos colleague Maynor Figueroa, a defender who spent the past three seasons in Frisco.
Dallas are currently in the final stages of selecting the successor to recently-departed head coach Oscar Pareja, who left to take over Liga MX side Club Tijuana last month; academy director Luchi Gonzalez is expected to be named as FCD’s choice this week.
