The rising star in New England Revolution left back DeJuan Jones signed a three-year contract extension on Wednesday. An option for 2025 will also be included in the contract.
The 24-year-old placed fifth in defender of the year voting, without even being nominated. The speedy ninth overall pick in 2019 has shown impressive strides in the switch from winger to left back. The improvement has been massive, and he has even trained his left foot to almost equal his right. It would not at all be surprising if DeJuan did not stay in New England for his entire contract, as he is already drawing interest elsewhere.
Jones joins Gustavo Bou, Carles Gil, and Brandon Bye in completed 2021 contract extensions. The Revs continue to look to bolster the roster and fill any holes. They started by adding USMNT midfielder Sebastian Lletget, and the news will keep coming this off-season. Bruce Arena has a couple of moves lined up that will come to fruition sooner rather than later. New England will play their first match in 2022 in exactly two months, when they will visit Cavaly AS of Haiti in the CONCACAF Champions League.
