Ghanaian defender Lalas Abubakar has renewed his stay at Columbus Crew. The club has reached an agreement with the centre-back over the new deal.
The 23-year-old is expected to return to the side for his third season.
“2019 roster preparations are ongoing, and together with our returning players we look to add new talent that can execute our style of play and position the team to return to the postseason,” said Crew SC sporting director and coach Gregg Bethalter.
Abubakar scored a goal in 24 appearances for Crew at the end of the season.
