The New England Revolution have re-signed midfielder Emmanuel Boateng for next season with a club option for 2025, the team said Tuesday.

Boateng, who turns 30 on Jan. 17, had his contract option declined after the 2023 season but is coming back for his fourth year with the Revolution. He has six goals and 10 assists over 66 MLS appearances (28 starts) since signing as a free agent with New England in 2021. Last season, he had two goals and three assists in 27 MLS contests.

"Ema Boateng has been an important contributor to our attack and has been a productive player in our league throughout his entire career," Revolution sporting director Curt Onalfo said in a statement.

Boateng, a native of Ghana, has played in the MLS for the LA Galaxy (2016-19), D.C. United (2019-20), Columbus Crew (2020) and Revolution (2021-2023). He has a total of 187 MLS appearances (96 starts), 15 goals and 24 assists.

He won the 2020 MLS Cup title with the Crew under Caleb Porter, the new head coach of the Revolution.

"Ema is a seasoned veteran in Major League Soccer with a successful track record of delivering for his teams in key moments, including the last three years with the Revolution," Porter said in a statement. "I know Ema well from our time in Columbus, where we won an MLS Cup together, and from many years coaching against him, so I am excited to see him remain with the Revolution and look forward to working with him again in New England when we hit the field in just under two weeks."
