FRISCO (Sports Network) - FC Dallas announced late Monday that the club has signed midfielder Peter Luccin, pending receipt of his P-1 visa and International Transfer Certificate.

Luccin, 33, began his career in the youth system of French club AS Cannes before playing 118 matches in Ligue 1 between stints with Bordeaux, Marseille and PSG. He ventured over to La Liga in 2001 where he featured in a total of 215 games with Celta Vigo, Atletico Madrid, Real Zaragoza and Racing Santander.

“Peter came in at the end of the season to be seen by the FC Dallas coaching staff,” said FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman. “We were in the final two weeks of training, so he was being measured against a group of players who were very fit. He really impressed us.

“He can cover a lot of space in central midfield and he seldom loses the ball. His resume is quite outstanding, having played quite a few years in the first divisions in France and Spain. He is going to be a very good addition to our team.”

Per team and MLS policy, the terms of the deal will not be disclosed.
