The Revolution have re-signed midfielder Lee Nguyen.
Nguyen, 27, appeared in 63 matches during the last two seasons and has played as a playmaker, on the wings, and in a holding position. Revolution Head Coach Jay Heaps saw Nguyen's talent and versatility and didn't hesitate to pass it up when Nguyen was surprisingly available in the 2012 Waiver Draft after being released by the Vancouver Whitecaps.
Nguyen has nine goals and nine assists through two seasons with New England.
He has additional playing experience in the U.S. youth and senior systems, plus at the club level with PSV Eindhoven (Holland), Randers (Denmark), Hoang Anh Gia, and Becamex Binh Duong (Vietnam).
“We’re pleased we were able to reach a new agreement with Lee,” General Manager Michael Burns said in a statement. “He's been an important player for us the past two seasons on and off the field, and we believe he'll continue being a key contributor moving forward.”
Nguyen's base salary last year was $73,600, according to the MLS Players Union. Terms of this new deal were not disclosed.
