Joe Bendik has signed a new contract with Toronto FC.
The 24-year old goalkeeper has been secured to a multi-year deal as he gets set to be the Canadian clubs undisputed number one following a solid 2013 MLS campaign.
Bendik stepped into Stefan Frei's slot and performed well in his 33 outings which prompted the club to offer him a new deal and send the Swiss gloveman to Seattle Sounders in exchange of a first-round pick in the 2013 SuperDraft.
"Joe had an opportunity to step in and prove himself this season and he did so in a big way. He's still a relatively young keeper who showed he has the ability and mentality to handle a full season of MLS play. We are excited to watch him continue to develop his skills and be a leader on our re-shaped roster next season," said Toronto FC General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko.
"We are confident that we have addressed our goalkeeper situation for the upcoming season, while adding increased roster and cap flexibility in the process."
