Orlando City SC sign Robin Jansson to two-year deal

1/13/2021 11:04:47 AM EST

Orlando City SC signed defender Robin Jansson to a two-year contract with options in 2023 and 2024, the team announced Wednesday.

Financial terms were not disclosed for Jansson, who joined the Lions ahead of the 2019 season. The 29-year-old Swede has yet to dent the scoresheet while starting in all 50 of his career regular-season games with Orlando City and two playoff contests.

"Robin is committed to what we are building here at Orlando City, so we are very excited to come to terms on a new deal and secure his place on our roster for future seasons," Orlando City EVP of Soccer Operations Luiz Muzzi said.

"Having a solid defensive base helped lead us to success last season, and maintaining consistency and stability across our backline was a focus of ours this offseason. Robin has proven to be one of the most formidable defenders in Major League Soccer, and we are happy that this Club has been and will continue to be the place his talents are showcased."

Jansson registered a team-leading 1,980 minutes played for Orlando City, which posted an 11-4-8 record (41 points, 1.78 points per game) during the 2020 season.
