Columbus Crew re-sign speedy forward, leading scorer Dominic Oduro to new contract

The Crew announced on Monday that they have re-signed the MLS veteran after he posted a team-high 13 goals last year, his first with the team.

Per Major League Soccer and club policy, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“Dominic is the most explosive player in the league, and he will play an important role in our plans moving forward,” Crew sporting director and head coach Gregg Berhalter said in a statement. “There was lot of competition for Dominic’s signature, but he wanted to stay in Columbus, and when a coach hears that it’s a great feeling. We’re very happy to get this deal done and we look forward to seeing him back with the club in preseason training.”

Oduro’s 13-goal scoring clip tied Andres Mendoza (2011) for the Crew’s highest goal-scoring output in the past five seasons, marking the third-highest rate for a player in his first year in a Crew jersey, trailing only Brian McBride with 17 goals in 1996 and Stern John, who scored 26 times in 1998.

Oduro, 28, also matched his career high with four assists for the Crew, who acquired him from the Chicago Fire last February in a deal for midfielder Dilly Duka.
