The former first round pick played in 38 matches over his three seasons in Frisco, notching a goal and three assists in his 1,936 minutes played. After making his professional debut in March 2017, Hayes appeared in at least 16 matches each of the past two seasons, logging over 800 minutes in both campaigns.
The third round pick FC Dallas is receiving could become a second round pick should Hayes meet certain performance-based metrics next year with the Loons. On top of that, the club may also receive $100,000 in TAM based on other performance-based incentives.
With the midfielder’s departure, FC Dallas may lean on the shoulders of Edwin Cerrillo even more in 2020 after he notched over 900 minutes in his first season after signing a homegrown deal with the club.
