The Columbus Crew has re-signed defender Jed Zayner to a four-year contract.

Per club and league policy, no further terms of the deal were disclosed.

Zayner, 25, was originally selected by the Crew in the second round (No. 13 overall) of the 2006 MLS SuperDraft as a Generation adidas signee after three standout seasons at perennial NCAA-power Indiana University. He was a member of the Hoosiers' 2004 National Championship squad, alongside current teammate Danny O'Rourke.

"Jed is coming off a very good season and I'm happy that we were able to reach agreement with him," said head coach Robert Warzycha. "He earned a lot more playing time and proved he is a good player who can contribute."
