FC Dallas Head Coach Schellas Hyndman is hailing the transfer of attacking midfielder David Ferreira from Atletico Paranaense.

Speaking to mlsnet about the 29-year-old Colombian, Hyndman said: "He is an outstanding player. This is a special player who reminds me of Oscar Pareja. He's very agile, quick and has got a great soccer brain. Technically, he's very strong. I think this is a player that will be a difference maker for FC Dallas.

"I see his style as a two-way player who will work on defence.

"He's a very active player. He's not a player that's going to run at the big defenders, but he has the quickness, speed and intelligence to always get into space. We brought him in to be our No. 10, central attacking midfielder with the qualities of scoring goals, unbalancing the opposition and dribbling and passing abilities with penetration. I think you'll see our strikers feeding off of his quality services and passing ability. I think we will have one of the best strike forces in the league."
