FC Dallas signs Fabian Castillo to new five-year deal

FRISCO, Texas (Tuesday, Feb. 10) – FC Dallas has signed midfielder Fabian Castillo to a new five-year deal, the club announced today. Per league and team policy, the terms of the agreement will not be disclosed.
“We’re very excited to have secured the services of Fabian Castillo for the future,” said FC Dallas Technical Director Fernando Clavijo. “He is the future of this franchise. He is a player we have been able to help grow. We also believe he has yet to achieve his full potential. FC Dallas has a more mature and complete player in Fabian today than we did a few years ago, but each year he remains with FC Dallas, the better he will become.”

Castillo, 22, enjoyed a breakout season in 2014. He notched career highs in goals (10), minutes played (2,282), games started (26), shots (74) and shots on goal (32). Four of his 10 goals were game-winning goals. He was named to the MLS Team of the Week four times and was named FC Dallas’ Team MVP following the season.

In four seasons with FC Dallas, Castillo has scored 20 goals, putting him 12th all-time in club history.
