FC Dallas veteran Daniel Hernandez has signed a new deal with the club which will see him step into coaching.

The 34-year old has penned a three-year contract which will allow him to play at least one more MLS season before joining the Texan clubs coaching staff.

Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman was delighted to announce the agreement and is looking forward to seeing Hernandez develop as a coach.

"Daniel has been such a great leader for us in the locker room and on the field," Hyndman said in a statement. "I'm very excited to have him back. He's an integral part of our team.

"I had the pleasure of coaching him in college at SMU and I'm honored to be a part of this next transition for him and hope to pass along as much coaching knowledge as I can in the next three years. I'm sure he will excel."
