Alejandro Bedoya signs contract extension at Nantes
Alejandro Bedoya has finalized a contract extension with his French club Nantes through the 2018-19 season
Bedoya was under contract with Nantes through the 2015-16 coming into this campaign, but his continued rise as one of the club’s most influential players prompted the sides to hash out a new deal that extends the relationship for a further three seasons.
Bedoya, one of the top performers for the United States in its World Cup run last summer in Brazil, earned a spot among the finalists in balloting for the annual U.S. Soccer Male Athlete of the Year award, which ultimately went to Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard. Bedoya joined fellow national team members Kyle Beckerman, Clint Dempsey, Fabian Johnson and Jermaine Jones as finalists for the honor along with Howard.
Bedoya scored a memorable strike against Paris Saint-Germain in December for his lone league goal this season. He’s earned 37 caps for the United States since 2010, scoring two goals for his country.
