Veteran MLS midfielder Harry Shipp is staying with Seattle Sounders FC in 2020.

Shipp, who was out of contract after the 2019 season, re-signed with the club Wednesday and will play his fourth consecutive year in Seattle during the upcoming campaign.

Seattle originally traded the Montreal Impact for Shipp, now 28, in 2016. He has 62 regular season appearances, including 41 starts, in the last three seasons and has also recorded 10 goals and seven assists.

He was particularly useful last season, making 25 regular season appearances en route to helping the Sounders capture the 2019 MLS Cup title.

“Harry has been an important member of our team the last few years and we are happy to bring him back for 2020,” Sounders FC General Manager and President of Soccer Garth Lagerwey said in a statement. “He provides steady, consistent play and is a good veteran presence in our locker room.”

Shipp’s MLS career started with Chicago Fire FC, which signed the Lake Forest, Illinois native as a Homegrown Player in 2014. He went on to score 10 goals in 66 appearances for the Fire before being traded to Montreal in 2016 for an undisclosed sum of allocation money.
