FC Dallas has finally found the man to be their #10 for the 2009 MLS season.  Schellas Hyndman has made no secret of his desire to sign a true #10 playmaker for the squad and he hopes Columbian David Ferreira will fill the jersey.  David Ferreira will join FC Dallas in Brazil this weekend and train with the team there before heading back to the US for the MLS season.

"We're very excited to be able to add a player of Ferreira's ability and experience," said FC Dallas General Manager Michael Hitchcock. "If you look at the majority of teams who have won the MLS Cup, they've had a true number 10; an attacking midfielder who can be a real game-changer. In David Ferreira, we have a player who has played at the highest level with the Colombian national team, been one of the top players for Atletico Paranaense in the Brazilian first division, and now we look forward to bringing him to FC Dallas, where we think he'll be able to help take this team to the next level and contend for a championship."
