FC Dallas’ George John move to Blackburn falls through

FC Dallas Logo.jpgLocal product George John seemed all but set to join Blackburn of the English Premier League, but apparently the deal is off.

“Despite mutual interest, Blackburn Rovers and George John have decided not to enter into a contract,” said Doug Quinn, FC Dallas President and CEO, in a statement. “Blackburn had significant interest in acquiring George; however, for the time being, they decided not to finalize the deal. We are excited to have a player of George’s caliber back at FC Dallas.”

A Shoreline native, John played collegiately at Washington. He’ll rejoin FC Dallas in advance of Tuesday’s U.S. Open Cup semifinal against Sounders FC.
