Orlando City SC forward Tesho Akindele agreed Friday to a contract extension through 2021 that includes options for 2022 and 2023.

"We are very excited to have Tesho continue with us in Orlando," executive vice president of soccer operations Luis Muzzi said in a statement. "He has shown true leadership both on and off the field since his arrival, as well as an innate goal-scoring ability. Tesho is a very important piece on our roster and a role model for our youth. We look forward to seeing his continued involvement with the growth of all aspects of our Club."

Orlando City acquired Akindele from FC Dallas ahead of the 2019 MLS season. He went on to set a career high with 10 goals in 28 games last season.

The 28-year-old veteran has 34 goals and 10 assists in 164 games with Dallas and Orlando City. He was the MLS Rookie of the Year in 2014.
