The Colorado Rapids announced on Friday that the club has re-signed goalkeeper Steward Ceus, who posted shutouts in his two MLS starts in 2012, to a new contract.

The 25-year-old keeper joined the Rapids in 2009 and has also represented the Haitian National Team since 2010. Per league and team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"Stew has continued to improve as a player for the last several years, and proved at the end of the 2012 season that he is a capable goalkeeper in MLS," said Rapids Technical Director Paul Bravo. "He is a hard worker and a great teammate, and we're pleased that he'll be returning to the Rapids in 2013."

"I'm excited to sign a new contract with the Rapids," said Ceus. "I've learned a lot over the last few years and I'm looking forward to the future here in Colorado."

Ceus made his MLS debut in 2012, entering the Rapids match on October 6 against San Jose for an injured Matt Pickens. He then started Colorado's final two games of the season, earning shutouts in 2-0 victories over Chivas USA and the Houston Dynamo. He also played in the May 29, 2012 win over the Tampa Bay Rowdies in the U.S. Open Cup, and five of the Rapids matches in the CONCACAF Champions League in 2011.
