One of the key cogs of the Revolution midfield will remain in Foxborough for the foreseeable future after the club signed Scott Caldwell to a new contract on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old Braintree, Mass. native, who became the second Homegrown Player signing in club history prior to the 2013 season, is coming off a season in which he played all 34 matches, earning team MVP honors.

“Scott has been an important part of this club, both on and off the field,” Revolution general manager Michael Burns said in a club release on Tuesday, “and he’s an example of the type of player we look for here in New England.”

Caldwell played 89 games for the Revolution over the last three seasons. He scored his first MLS goal in a 4-0 rout of Real Salt Lake last year, and collected a total of two tallies and five goals in 2015.

Prior to joining the senior squad in 2013, Caldwell became the first captain of the Revolution Under-18s in 2008. He went on to play at Akron University, where he won a national championship with the Zips in 2010.

“We have had the opportunity to watch Scott grow from being a homegrown player to being named MVP of the club by both his teammates and fans,” Burns said. “We are excited Scott will be with the club in the years ahead.”

Terms of the Caldwell’s new contract were not disclosed, per league and club policy. The MLS Players Union pegged his salary at $67,500 in 2015.
