Scott Caldwell will remain in New England Revolution colors for the foreseeable future as the local product has signed a new contract. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"Scott has been an important part of this club, both on and off the field, and he’s an example of the type of player we look for here in New England," Revolution general manager Michael Burns said. "We have had the opportunity to watch Scott grow from being a homegrown player to being named MVP of the club by both his teammates and fans. We are excited Scott will be with the club in the years ahead."

Originally joining as a Homegrown Player in 2012, Caldwell is currently in his fourth year with the Revolution. The 24-year-old midfielder has made 89 appearances, logging 6,6609 minutes. Although best known for his defensive abilities, Caldwell has chipped in on the attacking end as evident by the two goals and seven assists he has collected during his career.

In 2015, Caldwell shed the title of "unsung hero," as he earned both local and national attention. He appeared in all 34 Revolution games, registering career highs in goals (two) and assists (five). At season's end, he won the team's MVP award and Players' Player of the Year.

Caldwell and the Revolution will begin their 2016 regular season campaign on Sunday when they face the Houston Dynamo. Kickoff is set for a 3:00 pm est.
