Wondolowski thrilled to sign DP contract with San Jose Earthquakes

Chris Wondolowski was delighted to have signed a new and improved deal with San Jose Earthquakes on Tuesday.

The 30-year old striker penned a Designated Player contract which sees him double his wages and become just the second DP in club history.

"This is a tremendous honor," the reigning MLS MVP and Golden Boot winner said in a club statement. "I want to thank John Doyle and our ownership group for getting this deal done.

"As my hometown team, I couldn't be more excited to sign a Designated Player contract with the Earthquakes. These last few years have been amazing and I look forward to continuing my career in San Jose."

Quakes head coach Frank Yallop added: "Chris has been a fantastic player for this club over the last three years and this new contract is a just reward.

"He's been the top goalscorer in our league over the last three years, works hard and does all the right things on and off the field. We're very excited to have him in the fold long-term here in San Jose."
