Toronto FC have announced that goalkepeer Alex Bono has signed a contract extension with the club.
Bono had previously been mentioned in transfer rumours as recently as a few weeks ago, as it seemed that Belgian side Club Brugge was interested in his signature. Those rumours have been put to rest for now, though, as Bono has committed to the MLS side.
The MLS Players’ Union’s salary database listed Bono’s guaranteed compensation at $102,000 with TFC. It’s unclear whether or not he’s received a raise as part of this new contract, although that might make sense (I believe his previous deal was fairly standard for players graduating from Generation Adidas).
Bono has played 18 games this year for TFC, with four clean sheets and a 7-6-5 record. He was a key part of the Reds’ record-setting season last year, as he won 19 games with 10 shutouts, setting club records for both. He’s been one of the team’s most consistent players and, at just 24 years old, they’ll be glad to have secured his services for a while longer.
