Atlanta United re-signed defender Efrain Morales through the 2024 MLS season with options for 2025 and 2026, the club announced Wednesday.

Atlanta previously declined the 19-year-old homegrown player's 2024 option but noted earlier this month that negotiations for his return were ongoing.

Morales has yet to make his Five Stripes debut. He finished the 2023 season on loan at Atlanta United 2, where he had one goal in 20 MLS Next Pro starts.

"Efrain is a player who has continued to improve along his pathway from our inaugural U-12 side to Atlanta United 2 and the first team," vice president and technical director Carlos Bocanegra said in a release. "We're excited to sign him to a contract extension and look forward to his continued development at the club."
