D.C. United have extended the contract of 25-year-old forward Patrick Mullins. Mullins scored eight goals and recorded two assists in 14 appearances after joining the Black-and-Red via trade with New York City FC on July 20.
"Patrick is a player who had a major breakout after we traded for him last summer," Dave Kasper, United general manager and vice president of soccer operations, said. "His work ethic on both sides of the ball, positional awareness, and nose for the goal affect the outcome of games week after week. Securing Patrick's future is another big step for the club, and we look forward to his contributions this season and beyond."
