Earthquakes re-sign Chris Wondolowski

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- The San Jose Earthquakes have re-signed forward Chris Wondolowski, who scored 27 goals last season, tying the Major League Soccer record set by Tampa Bay's Roy Lassiter in 1996.

The deal announced by the club Tuesday makes Wondolowski, a Bay Area native and the reigning MLS MVP, the second San Jose player to take a designated player spot.

"We're thrilled to have Wondo locked up for the long term," Earthquakes general manager John Doyle said in a statement on the team's website. "I'm also happy that our ownership stepped forward to make this deal happen. Wondo's contract is well deserved after the hard work and success he has had on the field."

The 30-year-old Wondolowski won the Golden Boot as the league's top scorer while leading San Jose to the Supporters' Shield with the best regular-season record. He was the first Earthquakes player to win the MVP award, and the first MLS player to lead the league in goals for three straight years.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed but according to multiple reports, he will earn $600,000 in the first year of the contract. The San Jose Mercury News reported that Wondolowski signed a four-year contract.

"I wouldn't want to be anywhere else," Wondolowski told the San Jose Mercury News. "I love the organization, I love where they're headed."

Wondolowski's signing prevented the Earthquakes from signing midfielder John Bostick to a contract as it would have pushed San Jose over the cap. Bostick returned to Tottenham after a two-week stint with the Earthquakes.

Wondolowski became a designated player for the first time and he told the Mercury News that he hopes more American players can follow in his path.

"These are the players who are making it and proving themselves," he told the newspaper. "Sometimes they've been too quick giving foreign players DP money that aren't accustomed to the league and it doesn't quite work out."
