Revolution re-sign young defender DeJuan Jones to new deal

The New England Revolution continue to make transactions during a busy off-season. 

The Revs announced Friday they have re-signed 22-year-old defender DeJuan Jones, who will be entering his second MLS season. Jones appeared in 20 games, including 14 starts during his rookie year, notching a goal and an assist while holding down the fort on the back end.

He was drafted 11th overall in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft out of Michigan State University, where he tallied 16 goals and 14 assists over 75 appearances for the Spartans. 

The Jones deal comes after Bruce Arena's squad added highly-experienced left back Alexander Büttner and signed 16-year-old midfielder Damian Rivera to a homegrown player contract. 

But while the Revolution are busy adding players, forward Juan Fernando Caicedo reportedly will be leaving the organization, according to ESPN, after a one-year loan from Independiente Medellin of Colombia. 

After an exciting turnaround that saw the team make the 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs, more is in store for the rising Revolution.
