Columbus Crew have signed a pair of young guns on Homegrown Player contracts.
Defender Ross Friedman and midfielder Matt Walker have been added to the Crewâ€™s senior roster after coming through the Ohio clubs academy.
"I think these signings are a tribute to our youth development system and the type of players this club and this region are capable of producing," said Crew boss Gregg Berhalter.
"Matt Walker is a dynamic player that has the ability to turn in tight spaces and take players on one-on-one, and he fits the style that we want to play. Ross Friedman is a versatile player that can play a number of positions and has a tremendous work rate. Both players have good soccer minds, and they are strong additions to the first team."
