DYKSTRA SIGNS CONTRACT WITH DC UNITED
RICHMOND, Va. – Thomas Wolfe wrote a novel, "You can't go home again." Former VCU soccer standout Andrew Dykstra is proving him wrong.
On Monday, Dykstra inked a contract to rejoin Major League Soccer, this time with the D.C. United, located not far from his hometown of Woodbridge, Va. He will join the team for preseason training immediately.
Most recently, Dykstra traveled through Europe, exploring professional opportunities in the United Kingdom. When offered a deal with the Major League Soccer team in DC, the Woodbridge, Va. native decided it was time to return home.
"It has taken some time working through negotiations and feeling out my options, but I feel like this was the best move for me," he said. "I was told before my Euro excursion that I was welcome back to DC if it did not work out the way I hoped."
