Union deal Jacobson to FC Dallas

The Philadelphia Union traded 25-year-old midfielder Andrew Jacobson to FC Dallas in exchange for Dallas’ second round pick of the 2013 Major League Soccer SuperDraft.

Jacobson, a Union original, was originally acquired by Philadelphia on Nov. 25, 2009 in that year’s Expansion Draft from D.C. United.  He started the club's first-ever match at Seattle Sounders FC on March 25, 2010 and  ended up starting 13 games and logging 1,294 minutes.

After graduating from Cal in 2008, the Palo Alto, Calif. native was drafted by D.C. United but decided to join Lorient of France’s Ligue 1 instead.  In 2009, the midfielder returned to the U.S. and rejoined D.C. United, making 17 appearances in 845 minutes.  He notched one goal in a 2-1 win over the Harrisburg City Islanders in the U.S. Open Cup Quarterfinals.
