TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Trialist
FC Dallas homegrown midfielder Thomas Roberts is currently in Scotland to trial with Hibernian FC, the club confirmed to MLSsoccer.com. 3rd Degree first reported the news on Tuesday. He is currently undergoing mandatory quarantine.
Roberts, 19, is a highly touted graduate of the Dallas academy. He made six MLS appearances (three starts) during the 2019 season, but hasn't appeared in a match in 2020. He has received regular playing time with North Texas SC, Dallas's USL League One affiliate. He was in the starting XI in last year's USL League One final, which North Texas won.
The midfielder has been a regular with various U.S. youth national teams, including being called into the most recent United States Under-20 camp in January, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Roberts was one of four FC Dallas youngsters to go on a training stint with Bayern Munich over the offseason. Hibernian are currently third in the Scottish Premiership, behind Rangers and Celtic.
