FC Dallas hinted at some more signings after a busy Monday and then came through with it. They have acquired winger Jader Obrian from Rionegro Aguilas on a permanent transfer and signed the player using Targeted Allocation Money (TAM).

He will be under contract through the 2023 season with club options for 2024 and 2025 seasons. Per team policy, additional terms of the deal will not be disclosed. The Colombian midfielder will be added to Dallas’ roster in January 2021 pending receipt of his P-1 Visa and International Transfer Certificate (ITC). Obrian will occupy an international roster spot.

The 25-year old joins FC Dallas after spending two seasons with Colombian first-division side Rionegro Aguilas where he has scored 27 goals in 68 appearances across all competitions. He is currently second in Categoría Primera A with 13 goals scored this season. He has also played for Deportes Tolima and Uniautónoma FC in Categoría Primera A, as well as Cúcuta Deportivo during its time in Colombia’s second-division league Categoría Primera B in 2018.

What do you make of this latest signing to come true before the holidays? Is this a Michael Barrios 2.0 or something even better?
