DeJuan Jones signs three-year contract extension with New England Revolution

New England Revolution have re-signed defender DeJuan Jones to a new three-year contract extension with a club option for a fourth year.

The 24-year-old played a key role in the Revs winning the Supporters’ Shield with a record points total in 2021, logging the second-highest number of minutes (2,638) among the club’s outfield players.

Jones came fifth in the MLS Defender of the Year voting after a season in which he scored three goals and provided four assists from left-back, while making the highest number of tackles (88) at the club.

His improvement at both ends of the pitch is clear to see and Jones has now been rewarded with a deal that will keep him at Gillette Stadium until at least the end of the 2024 season.

“DeJuan has shown tremendous improvement over his three years in New England and is developing into one of the best outside backs in Major League Soccer,” Revolution sporting director and head coach Bruce Arena said in a club press release.

“His performance this season was instrumental in helping us win the Supporters’ Shield. We look forward to seeing DeJuan continue to improve and excel here in New England.”

With this new deal, the New England Revolution have tied down both their starting full-backs from the 2021 season. In November, Brandon Bye also extended his stay at the club by another three years.

According to reports, Jones had previously been attracting interest from Europe, with teams in Germany, Greece, and Belgium though to be on the lookout. At the very least, his new contract will give the Revs far more power at the negotiating table, should clubs come forward with an offer.
