FC Dallas is bringing back former All-Star forward Kenny Cooper in a trade with the New York Red Bulls.

Cooper had 18 goals and three assists in 30 starts 2008, when he was an All-Star and the league's Comeback Player of the Year after an injury-shortened 2007 season.

Cooper was transferred to 1860 Munich during the 2009 season but was limited by injuries in two seasons there. The 28-year-old returned to MLS with Portland before getting traded to New York.

FC Dallas also acquired forward Eric Hassli from Toronto for a conditional second-round pick in 2014.
