FC Dallas confirm George John returning from West Ham loan

George John is set to return to FC Dallas following a two-month loan with English Championship side West Ham United.

George John is set to return to FC Dallas following a two-month loan with English Championship side West Ham United.

West Ham United elected not to turn the loan into a transfer based on their club's current top-of-the-table success and the current form of the club's two starting center backs.

"We're very excited to have a player of George John's caliber return to our team," said FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman. "He has been one of our most consistent players. Without question, FC Dallas is a better team with George John. In speaking with George, he's very excited to rejoin our team and help FC Dallas compete for a return trip to MLS Cup."

"It was unfortunate that I didn't get to play, but it really was understandable given the circumstances," said John, who scored a goal in his first Reserve game with the English side. "I hope West Ham continues its good form and gets back to the Premier League. That's certainly where the club belongs."
