The Philadelphia Union and goalkeeper Andre Blake have agreed terms on a new contract.

Blake’s current deal expires at the end of 2024 but the Jamaican has agreed to extend his stay in Philadelphia, sources briefed on the deal tell The Athletic. 

Blake is the only player in Major League Soccer (MLS) history to win three Goalkeeper of the Year awards (2016, 2020, 2022). He currently holds the record for the most appearances made in the history of the Union, with 283.

The 33-year-old has spent his entire career with the Union after being selected No 1 overall in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft and has been integral to their success over the last six years.

The Union won their first-ever trophy — the 2020 Supporters’ Shield — and made their first-ever MLS Cup final in 2022. They have made the playoffs in each of the last six seasons making them one of the most consistent teams in MLS.

Blake has battled injuries this season, making only eight appearances across all competitions and five in MLS.

The Jamaica international has 75 caps for his country. He was recently named in Heimir Hallgrímsson’s squad for the Copa America and is set to start in Jamaica’s opening game against Mexico on June 23.
