The Colorado Rapids are locking in goalkeeper William Yarbrough for good. The team signed the 31-year old to a three-year contract with a club option for 2024.
The former Leon keeper played for the Rapids on loan last season. He went 6-4-4 with a 1.43 goals-against average and four shutouts in 14 games with the team.
"We're thrilled to be able to bring Will back to the club," Colorado general manager Padraig Smith said in a news release. "Will is a proven winner and his leadership within the locker room was invaluable as we navigated an unprecedented season last year.
"Bringing him back on a permanent basis was one of our top priorities this offseason and reinforces what we believe to be one of the best goalkeeping groups in the league," he added.
A U.S. men's national team member, Yarbrough spent eight seasons with Liga MX. There, he made 48 shutouts in 193 appearances. He was also part of two Liga MX title squads during his time there.
Yarbrough will be bringing in his experience for the Rapids for the next three years. He already showed what he can do while on loan. It's time to prove his worth for the long run.
