Report: FC Dallas After Colombian Defender

Via Futbolred.com

Reports out of Colombia suggest FC Dallas could be after Colombian defender Hernan Pertuz of Independiente Medellin. According to Diego Rueda of Caracol Radio, a major radio news outlet in Colombia, the former Colombian U20 international defender is headed to Frisco for the 2012 season.

Pertuz is a 22 year old central defender who has spent his entire career with DIM. In his time with the Colombian side, he has won a league championship in 2009 and participated in two Copa Libertadores seasons. The story really begins to gain traction once you learn that former Dallas Burn star Leonel Alvarez managed Independiente from 2008-2010 before taking over as Colombia manager. According Colombian reports, Pertuz was out of contract with his club who finished near the bottom of the table in 2011.

Back in 2009, Pertuz was a big part of the Colombian U20 South American Championship side that finished 5th in the tournament, scoring two goals and earning interest from Shakhtar Donetsk and FC Basel.
