Chris Tierney has been a team leader for the New England Revolution throughout his career, and he will continue to be.

The Revs re-signed Tierney, a natural left midfielder who has played left back the past two seasons, on Monday.

Tierney, who is New England's second-longest tenured player in his sixth MLS season, ranks in the Revs' top 10 in appearances, starts, minutes, assists, assists per game and corner kicks.

“He is a great leader on and off the field, and has been one of our most consistent and productive players the last few seasons," Revolution GM Michael Burns said, "so we’re very pleased he’s decided to sign a new contract to remain in New England.”

The 27-year-old from Wellesley, Mass., started his career in New England in 2008, when he was selected in the first round in the MLS Supplemental Draft. He has recorded at least four assists each of the past four seasons. He ranks seventh on the team in minutes this season and third on the team with four assists.

Terms of the deal have not been disclosed per club policy.
