No FC Dallas players will be sold to Xolos

This is a fantastic move by FC Dallas.With all apologies to Carlos Avilez, who was signed to a USL contract by FC Dallas over a year ago, Pepi as the "first North Texas SC player signing" is a fantastic get and exactly the kind of player that FC Dallas needs to lock up to a contract via the USL team.
