FC Dallas officially announce the signing of Alejandro Zendejas

New, 3 comments

The forward/midfielder makes HGP number 13 for FC Dallas.

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.
