FC Dallas signs Kellyn Acosta to homegrown contract

FC Dallas has signed another player from their talented youth system.  Today FCD announced the new signing of Plano teenager Kellyn Acosta to his first pro team contract under the homegrown player rule in Major League Soccer.

The signing now gives FC Dallas seven players under a rule that allows clubs to sign players who have participated in their development academy for at least a year. Only Toronto FC has signed as many under the 2008 provision.  Acosta, who turns 17 on July 24, is part of the US U-18 national team player pool.

He will be available for selection at the start of the 2013 MLS season. Kellyn Acosta scored nine times while starting 27 of 28 games during the 2011-12 FC Dallas development academy season.

It is great seeing all this young talent being developed, but it has yet to benefit the full side as of yet.  It would be nice to see the club actually go out and spend on a bigtime acquisition that could help get the team out of it's record long 13 match winless streak.
