Sporting Kansas City has come to terms on a new contract with key defender Matt Besler.
However, Besler has signed a three-year deal with SKC opting to remain in his hometown than head to the UK.
“Once I factored in everything Sporting KC had to offer, it was an easy decision,” Besler said.
“I’ve said all along this is where I want to stay and this is where I want to play.
“I really like the group of guys that (coach) Peter (Vermes) has put together, and I really do believe that we have the potential to win championships next year and for years to come.”
