George JOHN

Born: Shoreline, Washington USA. 20/03/1987

Position: Defender

John played college soccer at the University of Washington and then drafted in the first round by FC Dallas in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft. He made his professional debut on 4 April 2009, in a game against the New England Revolution. In the 2010 MLS season, John started 25 of 30 regular season games, and helped Dallas set a franchise-best goals against average. Dallas qualified for the 2010 MLS Cup Playoffs, and reached the MLS Cup, losing to the Colorado Rapids. In August 2011 Premier League side Blackburn Rovers bid £1.2 million to sign John.The player was keen to make the move, but the transfer fell through. On January 13, 2012, John signed a two-month loan deal that sent him to West Ham United. The deal included an option to make the transfer permanent. John scored in his first game for The Hammers, a Development match against a Gillingham XI in a behind closed doors game at Upton Park 24th January 2012. However, due to the form of top-of-the-table West Ham's regular starting centre backs, the American did not get any game time with the first team. On 2nd March 2012, John returned to FC Dallas having not played a single senior game for The Hammers. West Ham decided not to pick up their option to make the move permanent.
