MLS: Chicago Fire at FC Dallas Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Rumor: FC Dallas linked to Reece Oxford |
Yeah... this one sounds more like an agent trying to start a bidding war.

Hoops Home and Abroad |
Richards’ loan to Bayern is supposed to end in a few days, but he was back in Dallas for Luchi’s presser. He’s also absent from the roster list on the official FC Dallas page (and has been for a while). We’ll find out soon I suppose.

Keeping up with the hectic FC Dallas offseason |
Because Jose loves you, he keeps this page up to date with all the transfer rumors. You’ll want to bookmark this.

Laurent Ciman signs with Toronto FC |
Ciman returns to MLS, which is a great move for TFC and Ciman personally. Ciman originally came to MLS and Montreal specifically because his daughter has special needs and this was the best place for her to get treatment. Hopefully this works out for the best for the Ciman family.

Looks like the Crew have found their eventual replacement for Steffen.

Orlando City transfers Yoshimar Yotun to Cruz Azul |
Yeah, they denied this was happening but we all knew it was happening. Good move by OCSC.
