FC Dallas midfielder Andrew Jacobson traded to New York City FC

Tuesday July 29th, 2014

FC Dallas midfielder Andrew Jacobson was traded to New York City FC for the club’s highest 2016 third-round SuperDraft pick, the clubs announced Tuesday.

Jacobson has been with Dallas FC since he was acquired in trade with Philadelphia in Feb. 2011. The 28-year-old played in 98 matches, scoring five goals and adding seven assists for FC Dallas in the past four seasons.

The midfielder is the fifth player signed by New York City FC. Last week, the team announced the signing of veteran England and Chelsea star Frank Lampard. 

Since New York City’s inaugural pre-season does not begin until January 2015, Jacobson will go on loan to Stabæk in Norway, which is managed by former United States men’s national team coach Bob Bradley.

Bradley also manages fellow American Michael Stephens​ in Norway. Stephens has been on loan from the LA Galaxy since March 2014.
