Chicago Fire has picked up the options on a trio of midfielders.

Corben Bone, Alex and Michael Videira will all be back at the club this season after their contracts expired at the end of 2012.

"It was important for us to have Corben, Alex and Michael return in 2013," Javier Leon, Fire president of soccer operations, said in a statement.

"They are skillful and versatile players that provide us with depth in a variety of positions."

In addition, Chicago said goodbye to Argentine forward Guillermo Franco who made just three appearances last season.
