FC Dallas fans have been waiting to see what their next big roster move would be and it appears today is the day they get their answer.

FC Dallas has signed Hungarian winger Szabolcs Schön from MTK Budapest to a three-year contract with club options for the 2024 and 2025 seasons.

Schön will join the club upon expiry of his contract with MTK Budapest and occupy an international slot. He will be added to the roster pending receipt of his P-1 Visa and International Transfer Certificate (ITC).

The 20-year old joins FC Dallas after spending the past couple seasons with Hungarian first-division side MTK Budapest. He scored 14 goals and recorded 10 assists in 55 appearances across all competitions.

The Hungarian winger started his soccer career in the Budapest Honvéd academy in 2009. In 2017, Schön joined AFC Ajax’s academy where he participated in the UEFA Youth League and U-18 Cup Netherlands competitions.

We discussed this potential move in late February as the rumors in Europe began to pick up some steam on the deal. At the time, it was said that FCD was going to pay over a million dollars to sign Schon but given that there wasn’t a mention of TAM in this deal, it could be that the club has utilized the new U-22 roster initiative to make this deal work in their favor.

What is your take on this move? Excited to have another young winger as an option here this season?
