FC Dallas reportedly will trade midfielder and United States men’s national team player Kellyn Acosta to the Colorado Rapids, according to Dallas Morning News.

Dallas will receive forward Dominique Badji, a first-round pick in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft, international spots in 2018 and 2019 and a portion of Acosta’s transfer fee should he be moved in the future, according to the report.

Acosta was signed as a homegrown in 2012 and has made 117 league appearances for FC Dallas. He was part of FC Dallas’ midfield battle with Victor Ulloa and Carlos Gruezo, mainly serving as a backup.

Badji has seven MLS goals this season and was an unused sub in the Rapids’ 2-2 draw Saturday against Real Salt Lake.
