    FC Dallas signed winger Kalil ElMedkhar after acquiring his homegrown rights from the Philadelphia Union.

    The two-year contract announced Thursday also includes club options for the 2023, 2024 and 2025 seasons.

    Philadelphia received $50,000 in general allocation money in exchange, with the potential for more if ElMedkhar meets certain performance metrics.

    A Delaware native, ElMedkhar played four seasons at the University of Kentucky and registered 20 goals and 21 assists in 66 appearances.
