WASHINGTON, DC (Jan. 24, 2022) – D.C. United acquire defender Hayden Sargis from Sacramento Republic FC in the United Soccer League (USL) Championship on a three-year deal through 2024 with options in 2025 and 2026.

“Hayden [Sargis] is a young center-back who has all the qualities to be an outstanding piece of our backline in Hernán’s system,” Lucy Rushton, D.C. United General Manager, said. “He played a lot of minutes for Sacramento Republic, and we believe he is ready to make the jump up to MLS and compete for minutes on the first team. We’re excited to welcome him to the club and we’re looking forward to getting him integrated with the rest of the squad in preseason.”

Sargis signed his first professional contract with Sacramento Republic FC on Jan. 15, 2020, after rising through their academy ranks. The 19-year-old made his professional debut in a 1-1 draw with FC Tulsa on March 7, 2020. In two years as a professional with the first team and one while still in the academy, Sargis made 35 appearances (35 starts), recorded one assist, logged 2,789 minutes, and was nominated for 2020 USL Young Player of the Year.

Prior to playing with the first team, Sargis was a part of the Sacramento Republic Academy. He joined the academy program during their inaugural season in 2015. The center-back spent five years at the academy level where he made 109 appearances (92 starts) and scored three goals.

Birthplace: Turlock, Calif.

Transaction: D.C. United acquire defender Hayden Sargis from Sacramento Republic FC in the USL Championship on a three-year deal through 2024 with options in 2025 and 2026.

PREVIEW | FC Cincinnati seek fifth-straight win, return home to host the New England Revolution

SCOUTING THE NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION (3-5-3, 11 POINTS, 11th EASTERN CONFERENCE)
FC Cincinnati will get a second crack at the defending MLS Supporters’ Shield holders, a rematch of the U.S. Open Cup Round of 32 contest on Wednesday, May 11th in Foxborough, Massachusetts. On that day, the hosts came out on top, 5-1, the fourth-straight win by New England in the head-to-head series with FCC across all competitions. 

The Orange and Blue saw on that evening first hand how dangerous New England’s top offensive threats (Carles Gil and Adam Buksa) can be. Gil secured a hat trick, and Buksa scored a brace to combine for all five New England goals. In MLS action this season, Buksa has scored in five consecutive games, the longest active streak in MLS. 

Gil is one of the league’s craftiest midfielders. He led MLS last season in assists and creating chances, and he is right on the heels of the Orange and Blue’s Luciano Acosta this season in key passes and shot-creating actions.

The Orange and Blue did not have to face Matt Turner, one of the best goalkeepers in the league last Wednesday. The USMNT netminder returned from injury and made his season debut in late April, and has one clean sheet in three appearances this season. Turner is expected to join English Premier League side Arsenal in June, making Saturday perhaps the last time FCC will try to put shots past the 27-year-old standout.

The Revs are unbeaten in their last four games across all competitions. Bruce Arena’s squad are coming off a 2-2 tie last Sunday at Atlanta United FC.
