Adam John William Moffat (born 15 May 1986 in Glasgow) is a Scottish footballer who currently plays for FC Dallas in Major League Soccer.

Career[edit]

Moffat began his career in the lower divisions of the Scottish League, playing for Ross County and Elgin City between 2005 and 2007. In 2007, Moffat made a move to the United States to play for Cleveland City Stars in the USL Second Division, and stood out enough to be named to the league's Best XI. Having impressed MLS scouts with his performances, Moffat was signed by the Columbus Crew following the conclusion of the 2007 USL2 season, joining his former teammate Andrew Peterson.

Moffat scored his first MLS goal, and the first goal of the 2008 MLS season, on 29 March 2008 against Toronto FC. Moffat quickly became a fan favourite for his work ethic on and off the field, but unfortunately suffered a season-ending knee injury early in the season. While with Columbus Moffat appeared in 44 league matches and scored 5 goals.

On 24 November 2010, he was selected by the Portland Timbers in the 2010 MLS Expansion Draft to play for fellow Scotsman John Spencer.[1]

On 21 July 2011, Moffat was traded to the Houston Dynamo along with allocation money for Lovel Palmer and Mike Chabala.[2] On 14 August 2011, he scored a sensational 40-yard goal in the match versus his former team Portland Timbers at Robertson Stadium which was named an MLS Goal of the Week with a potential nomination for MLS Goal of the Year.[3] Moffat was suspended by the league for one game because of a reckless tackle he made on Seattle Sounders FC player Álvaro Fernández.[4]

On 13 September 2013, Moffat was traded to Seattle Sounders FC for Servando Carrasco and a second round draft pick.[5]

On 13 December 2013, FC Dallas acquired Moffat in a trade involving Kenny Cooper and allocation money to Seattle Sounders FC.[6]

Personal life[edit]

Adam is married to Jennifer Lenhart, sister of Steven Lenhart of the San Jose Earthquakes.[7]
