News broke this morning via a report in the Athletic of a new contract for Paxton Pomykal. Early this afternoon I was able to confirm via my own source that Pomykal has indeed signed a new four-year contract with FC Dallas including a one year option that should keep him in Frisco through 2024.
Reportedly, Pomykal’s new contract will pay him an average of $650,000 a season. I have been unable to confirm that number but do not doubt it’s validity. Pomykal’s new contract length is the same as I suggested back in June and the reported money is quite close as well.
While this new contract should not keep Pomykal from going to Europe if the right offer comes along, he clearly wants to be here in Dallas at this stage. FC Dallas did hold two options years on Pomykal so he wasn’t a free agent. FC Dallas has been pushing Pomykal as the face of the franchise this year and that should only continue to be the case with this new contract.
FC Dallas Technical Director Andre Zanotta had previously stated the club wants to reward their Homegrown players who had performed for them. Jesus Ferreira, Reggie Cannon, and Bryan Reynolds are all three also in the final year of their initial Homegrown contract with two club option years.
