FC Dallas set to sign Colombian playmaker

2008 018 

FC Dallas' search for a playmaker has led them to South America, where partner club Atletico Paranaense appears to have provided the Red Stripes with another player.

According to 3rd Degree, FC Dallas is set to sign Colombian playmaker David Ferreira. No word yet on details of the deal, but 3rd Degree is speculating that Ferreira will join FC Dallas on loan.

It will be interesting to see what the arrival of Ferreira does to the standing of midfielder Dax McCarty, who is enjoying a stellar pre-season after hammering out some differences with head coach Schellas Hyndman, differences that nearly led to McCarty being traded.

The Ferreira acquisition comes a day after FC Dallas shipped defender Adrian Serioux to Toronto FC for allocation money. Dallas had been approached by Houston and San Jose about Serioux, but ultimately dealt the Canadian-born defender to TFC.

What do you think of Ferreira as FC Dallas' playmaker? Disappointed the club didn't sign Walter Gaitan? Think Dax McCarty will stick around?
