Columbus Crew SC captain Jonathan Mensah agreed to a multi-year contract extension, the club announced Thursday.
Financial terms were not disclosed for the defender.
Mensah, 30, has three goals and one assist in 95 career matches with the Crew. He has played in every minute of all 18 games this season for Columbus (10-4-4, 34 points).
"We are thrilled to announce that Jonathan has signed a multi-year contract extension with the club," Crew president and general manager Tim Bezbatchenko said in a statement. "In addition to having a 'Defender of the Year' award-worthy season in 2020 and consistently being one of the top defenders in MLS, Jonathan is someone who leads by example and serves as a role model to the younger players. He has earned the respect of teammates, coaches and the Central Ohio community alike for his efforts on and off the field and we are delighted that he has committed to remain in Columbus."
