We discussed the other day that FC Dallas was on the verge of signing another Homegrown player and on Wednesday the club made it official. Alejandro Zendejas is now officially a FC Dallas player as the club announced today that he is the 13th Homegrown to sign a professional contract.
FC Dallas continues to the league in Homegrown signings.
This signing is special as the 16-year old Zendejas is the first Homegrown to come from one of the club's you affiliates, FC Dallas El Paso.
Zendejas played with FC Dallas' U-16 U.S. Soccer Development Academy team for each of the past three seasons. He has spent the majority of the 2014 season with the U.S. U-17 Men's National Team. Most recently, he was named to U-17 head coach Richie William's 20-man roster for the upcoming Panama International Tournament, which runs today through Oct. 5.
Zendejas was also named to the U.S. U-17 Men's National Team's 2014 Fall Residency Roster on Sept. 2, 2014.
It may be a while until FCD fans actually see Zendejas with the club as he'll likely be with the U-17s early next year as they go through World Cup qualifying in February.
Zendejas is the second HGP signed to FCD this season, behind forward Coy Craft.
