The New England Revolution announced Monday that they have signed forward Bobby Wood to a one-year contract through 2023 with an additional one-year club option for 2024.
Wood was selected by New England with the first pick in Stage 2 of the 2022 MLS Re-Entry Draft last week.
Wood, 30, spent the last two seasons with Real Salt Lake, where he recorded five goals in 31 appearances from 2021-22, with an additional tally in the MLS Cup Playoffs. Last season, Wood started 13 games for RSL, with three goals and one assist.
Before arriving in MLS, the Honolulu, Hawaii native spent his entire 11-year professional career in Germany, where he developed in the 1860 Munich youth academy before debuting for the senior team in 2011, followed by stints at FC Erzgebirge Aue, Union Berlin, Hamburger SV, and Hannover 96.
“We are excited to welcome Bobby Wood to the New England Revolution,” Revolution Sporting Director and Head Coach Bruce Arena said. “I’m very familiar with Bobby, having coached him on the international stage with the United States, and I’m very confident that he’ll be an excellent addition to our attack here in New England.”
