Toronto FC re-sign defender Justin Morrow to multi-year deal

Toronto FC locked up their steadiest defender for the foreseeable future on Monday, as the club announced that they have re-signed outside back Justin Morrow to a multi-year deal. Per league and club policy, additional terms of the contract were not disclosed.

“Justin has been an important player for Toronto FC over the past two seasons, and he is part of our core group we feel we can build our defence around,” Toronto FC general manager Tim Bezbatchenko said in a statement. 

“Aside from his contributions on the pitch, Justin is a great representative of our club off the pitch, with his tireless efforts in the community. We are all very happy to re-sign Justin.”

Morrow, 28, made 32 regular-season appearances for TFC in 2015, registering two goals and two assists to help the club to their first-ever Audi MLS Cup Playoffs berth. Morrow, who has one career cap with the US national team, joined Toronto ahead of the 2014 season after spending the first four years of his career with San Jose.
