Inter Miami FC signed the team’s 2020 Most Valuable Player Lewis Morgan to a new contract in a deal announced Monday.

Morgan led Miami with five goals and eight assists in 23 starts in the side’s inaugural season. The 24-year-old Scottish midfielder led the team to the playoffs and finished second in Major League Soccer with 65 chances created.

Miami used Targeted Allocation Money to sign Morgan.

“Lewis is a player who stood out in his first-ever season in MLS, not only for his performance on the field, but also positive attitude and willingness to be a team player at all times,” sporting director Chris Henderson said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to sign him to a new contract and reaffirm our commitment to valuable players who contribute to the team and proudly represent Inter Miami.”
