FRISCO, Texas (AP) -- FC Dallas has traded midfielder Andrew Jacobson to expansion New York City FC for a third-round pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft.

The deal was announced Tuesday, about eight months before New York's newest team starts play in Yankee Stadium next March. Jacobson becomes the fifth player on the expansion team's roster.

Jacobson, 28, started 85 of his 98 matches with Dallas since being acquired in a trade from Philadelphia on Feb. 18, 2011. He has five goals and seven assists in 140 career games.

For the rest of this year, Jacobson will be on loan to Stabaek in Norway, a team coached by former U.S. National team coach Bob Bradley.
