Minnesota United acquired midfielder Jacori Hayes from FC Dallas on Tuesday in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2021 MLS SuperDraft.

Hayes, 24, recorded two assists in 19 appearances (eight starts) with FC Dallas last season. He collected one goal and three assists across 38 matches (20 starts) in three seasons with the club.

"It's not very often you get the opportunity to bring somebody in who is young, who has experience in the league," Minnesota United coach Adrian Heath said. "Always delighted when anybody joins us and we think the midfield is an area where we're going to need a little more depth.

"We've got the Euro Cup coming up this year, the Olympics coming up and it's an area where we feel we could get stretched (with players departing for international duty). We spoke to a lot of people who have worked with Jacori now or before and they have a lot of good things to say about him. We're really excited to get him in."
