Trinidad and Tobago international defender Aubrey David is set to join FC Dallas on a six-month loan from Costa Rican side Deportivo Saprissa in a move announced on June 28th by the current champions of Costa Rica.
Although the loan move is yet to be formally announced by FC Dallas, both Deportivo Saprissa and David himself have confirmed and commented on the move. Deportivo Saprissa have also announced that FC Dallas will have the option to buy David following the six-month loan.
David has past playing experience in Finland for FF Jaro and in Kazakhstan for Shakhter Karagandy in addition to his time in Costa Rica.
Normally a wing back, David played at right back primarily for Deportivo Saprissa and plays left back for the Trinidad and Tobago national team. This would provide FC Dallas with additional options in defense in place of Atiba Harris on the right and Maynor Figueroa on the left side.
David played for Trinidad and Tobago at both the 2007 FIFA Under-17 World Cup and the 2009 FIFA Under-20 World Cup, before going on to earn 23 caps for the senior national team. David also featured for the Soca Warriors in the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
David had this to say about his move to Major League Soccer.
“I am happy about the move to Dallas, I thank God for this opportunity. It’s another opportunity to showcase my talent on the MLS level similar to what many players from Trinidad and Tobago have done already.
The 25 year-old defender will wear the number two for FC Dallas during his time in Frisco.
