Just as the MLS transfer deadline was approaching, FC Dallas did make one just wasn't the move you all were expecting.

Per a press release, the club announced that they have loaned rookie center back Nick Walker to Bayamon FC of the Puerto Rico Soccer League.

Walker will look to get some minutes to close out 2014 with a club that has plenty to play for this fall.

Puerto Rico Bayamón FC is scheduled to make its CONCACAF Champions League debut this Thursday, Aug. 7, against Guatemalan side Comunicaciones. Bayamón F.C. qualified for CCL play by winning Group 1 in the 2014 Caribbean Football Union Club Championship. The Puerto Rican club was drawn into Group 8 with Comunicaciones (Guatemala) and Club America (Mexico).

FC Dallas drafted Walker in the third round of the 2014 SuperDraft from Fairleigh Dickinson University. The Trinidad and Tobago native logged 405 minutes this year with the FCD Reserves and recently started and played 70 minutes in a friendly against EPL side Aston Villa.

Seeing the club move out a center back though does make you think they have something in the works either via trade or something to fill this void.
