Huge news out of Brazil as Globo, the ESPN of Brazil, is reporting that Cruzeiro have signed Jackson from Sao Paulo for the upcoming Brazilian season. The article says Jackson is already in Belo Horizonte undergoing a physical and has signed for the club on a one year loan to buy option.

FC Dallas couldn't confirm the news, though I'm sure we will hear more soon. Needless to say there is another huge hole in the FCD lineup at right midfield now and something that Schellas Hyndman couldn't have seen coming. More reaction to come on this once the news is confirmed by FCD.

Edit: This article from Esporte sheds a little more light on the situation. The last line is very curious...could be something lost in translation.

A spokesperson for Cruise confirmed the negotiations and that the athlete is already in Belo Horizonte. In the morning, and medical examinations conducted in the afternoon went to the Fox's Lair II to discuss details of the contract.The player stands on a year with an option to purchase at the end of the year. The economic rights of the athlete belong to the American club.
