Rolfe signs Fire extension

Bridgeview, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Veteran forward Chris Rolfe has signed a contract extension with the Chicago Fire, the club announced on Wednesday.

Rolfe was due to be available in Wednesday's re-entry draft, but with a new deal in place, Rolfe will remain in the Windy City for the foreseeable future.

"We're pleased to have signed Chris to a new contract," said Fire head coach and director of soccer Frank Yallop in a statement. "He's a dangerous attacking threat and provides a steady, veteran presence in the locker room. We're glad he will remain a part of the club."

Rolfe began his professional career with the Fire as a third-round selection in the 2005 MLS SuperDraft after a standout collegiate career at the University of Dayton. In seven seasons, Rolfe has appeared in 176 regular season matches, notching 48 career goals and 22 assists.

"I'm really excited that we reached an agreement before the Re-Entry Draft," said Rolfe. "I'm happy to stay longer in the city I want to be in and with the club I want to be with."

Rolfe made 31 appearances for the Fire last season, scoring four goals and adding one assist.
