Dax McCarty wants out of FC Dallas

New, 2 comments

Buzz Carrick has learned that Dax McCarty wants out of Dallas, but it seems that there isn't much interest. Dax has played on the U-20 and U-23 US National Teams.

A midfielder that has been deployed in a holding role. He was named to the Best XI by CONCACAF's technical study group after Olympic qualifying.

Dax had a reasonable salary last season of 45.5k/58k.

Should Sounders FC look into acquiring a young talented player such as Dax? He has 26 starts and 21 substitution appearances for his club in MLS and Superliga play with 1 goal and 13 assists. He had a +/- of 2 in all competitions last season with a GAA of 1.45 which was 3rd worst amongst FCD regulars.

Current best holding mids would be Vagenas (11GS/2subs) and Sturgis (1GS/1sub). With a likely diamond 4 or diamond 5 I don't think counting on those two would be a good idea.

Thoughts?
