The 2016 MLS Defender of the Year has put pen to paper on a new four-year deal with the Supporters' Shield winners.

Matt Hedges was a key part of a double trophy-winning season for FC Dallas, and the reigning Supporters' Shield winner has ensured that he will be sticking around for a while.

FC Dallas has signed Hedges to a new four-year deal, a source has confirmed to Goal USA.

Hedges was heading into the final year of his previous contract, which could have opened the door for a move away from MLS, but FC Dallas has stepped up to keep him in the frame for the foreseeable future. 

The University of North Carolina product was named to the 2016 MLS Best XI on Monday, marking his second straight appearance on the list of the league's standouts. 

He is expected to be among the MLS-based players called up by new U.S. coach Bruce Arena for January's U.S. national team camp.
