Dom Dwyer has signed a contract extension with Sporting Kansas City ahead of the 2015 MLS season in what is a major resigning for the club.

The 24-year-old Englishman netted 22 goals in 33 regular season appearances this year and was a constant threat for opposition defences.

“I am ecstatic to commit my future to Kansas City,” Dwyer said.

“I want to thank the coaches and ownership for having faith in me. Also, a special thanks to the fans for all of their continued support.

“I am excited to get going again. Last year was a starting point for what is to come in the future, which is scoring a lot more goals, driving to win championships and enjoying myself on and off the field in a city with supporters to which I have grown to love and embrace.”

Dwyer has scored 50 goals in all competitions for Kansas City since the start of 2013 and seems to improve with every game.

His six game-winning strikes in 2014 set a club record and he is now ranked ninth on the club’s all-time leading goalscorer list for MLS regular season goals.

Dwyer is thriving in America and he has set his sights on representing the US Men’s National Team in the next few years. He received his green card in 2012 and therefore could be seen playing for the USMNT by 2017.

“It’s something I want to look forward to. It’s something I’m very excited about, and I’ve heard little rumors here and there, little conversations with my agent that there’s interest in the US camp. That would be amazing if my phone was to ever ring for that,” Dwyer said.

“Obviously, it’s a good thing to be in the league for, and I also think the league’s going places as well. It’s a place to be.”
