Bayern signs American teen Che on loan from FC Dallas

<p>MUNICH &mdash; Bayern Munich has signed 17-year-old American defender Justin Che on loan from FC Dallas, the German club said Friday.</p>
<p>Che had been one of six Dallas players on trial at Bayern this month as part of a partnership agreement between the clubs and now joins on loan until the end of the 2020-21 season.</p>
<p>Bayern said Che will be part of the under-19 team but will also have training opportunities with the reserve squad, which plays in Germany’s third division.</p>
<p>The deal was possible before the age of 18, the usual minimum age for international transfers, because Che is also a German citizen, Bayern said.</p>
<p>Bayern signed defender Chris Richards from Dallas in 2019 after a similar loan spell. Richards has since played eight games for Bayern and made his debut for the U.S. national team in November.</p>
