TORONTO - Toronto FC striker Eric Hassli appears en route to Dallas.

FC Dallas used its official Twitter feed Friday to say it is in talks with Toronto FC "and close to finalizing a deal to bring Eric Hassli to Dallas."

Toronto FC declined comment on the tweet.

But the move make sense for several reasons.

Dallas lost 22-year-old attacking midfielder Brek Shea to English Premier League side Stoke City this week for a reported 2.5 million pounds (C$3.9 million).

And Toronto FC has talked about ways to ease a salary cap crunch that sees Hassli and fellow designated players Torsten Frings and Danny Koevermans, along with defenders Darren O'Dea and Richard Eckersley, accounting for a large chunk of its salary cap.
