New England Revolution have confirmed the re-signing of three of its players.
Kevin Alston, Darrius Barnes and Luis Soffner have all penned new deals with the Revs as they start preparations for the 2014 MLS season.
25-year old defender Alston, who returns for his sixth season in New England, was named the MLS Comeback Player of the Year for 2013 after overcoming chronic myelogenous leukemia.
27-year old defender Barnes is also back for his sixth campaign at the Gillette Stadium while 23-year old Soffner is back for his second season after joining the Revs via the 2013 MLS SuperDraft.
"We're pleased that we have been able to bring Kevin, Darrius, and Luis back to the Revolution," general manager Michael Burns said.
"Each player could have chosen a different path but wanted to return, which was important to us. Both Kevin and Darrius have been valuable members of this Club for the past five seasons and are reliable, proven veterans. They are both professional in the way they conduct themselves both on and off the field. In the case of Luis, we believe he has the potential to become a solid goalkeeper in MLS and look forward to his continued development."
