Rimando agrees new Real Salt Lake deal

Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando has reportedly signed a multi-year contract extension with the club.

The 2009 MLS Cup MVP has shored up his future with RSL, the new contract indicating that he will at least be at the club until the end of 2012 when his previous deal was set to expire.

The 31-year old has made 110 league appearances for Real since arriving at the club from DC United for the 2007 season.

He has been the lowest-paid starting goalkeeper in MLS for the past few years but this new deal is sure to see his salary rise above the $131,000 he earned last season.

Rimando becomes the fourth player to commit himself to the club this off-season, joining forwards Alvaro Saborio, Paulo Araujo Jr and Canada international Will Johnson.
