The New York Red Bulls have agreed to a new multi-year contract with Homegrown defender Connor Lade and have re-signed goalkeeper Kyle Reynish.
Lade has made 67 appearances for the first team since signing at the end of the 2011 season. He previously featured for both the academy side as well as the Red Bulls' National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) team. Lade's versatility has led to him playing right-back, left-back, and center defensive-midfield.
Lade appeared in 21 games for the Red Bulls (18 MLS matches and three U.S. Open Cup games) and featured in 2 United Soccer League (USL) matches for New York Red Bulls II during the 2015 season.
Lade registered one assist, with that coming in MLS play. Lade has been with the Red Bulls longer than any player on the roster aside from captain Dax McCarty.
Goalkeeper Kyle Reynish was re-signed after having his option declined at the end of the 2015 season. Reynish served as a backup to MLS Goalkeeper of the Year Luis Robles and did not make an appearance in MLS. He did however play for NYRB II in 4 matches (3 USL games, and 1 Open Cup game).
With the signing of Reynish, the Red Bulls now have 29 players under contract. At least one player currently on the roster will not be with the team when the season commences, as MLS roster rules limit teams to 28 players.
