Orlando City SC announced Wednesday afternoon that it has acquired midfielder Brian Span on-loan from MLS-side FC Dallas for the rest of the 2014 USL Pro season.
Span, 22, was acquired by FC Dallas in a weighted lottery conducted by MLS in January of 2014, after spending the past two seasons with Swedish first-division side Djurgårdens IF. He scored one goal in 14 appearances with the Swedish squad.
The 6-3, 187 pound american will add more depth to the Orlando City midfield. Lions head coach Adrian Heath has told reporters in the past that the team was looking to add another piece with a player who can play centrally or on the right side.
Span is a former under-17 national team player for the United States, and FC Dallas can bring him back into their control at any point during the season.
