FC Dallas trades Jeremy Hall to Toronto FC for 2013 draft selection

FC Dallas has traded defender Jeremy Hall to Toronto FC for the Canadian side’s second round natural selection in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft.

Hall played hurt for much of his time in Dallas, struggling with a groin problem that hampered his sped and explosiveness. But his contract was being partially paid by Portland in 2011 and with FCD being on the hook for the entire deal in 2012 Hall would have been a very highly paid backup. Instead Hall now gets a chance in Toronto.

Hall joined FC Dallas in an August deal that sent midfielder Eric Alexander to Portland. Hall appeared in four games for the Dallas side, making two starts. Overall, he has appeared in 58 MLS games, starting 50 and tallying five assists in three seasons.

A Generation adidas graduate, Hall attended Maryland where he won an NCAA title in 2008, after leading the Terps with 14 goals and seven assists. He played two seasons with the New York Red Bulls before being traded to Portland.
