Nashville SC extended Jhonder Cadiz’s loan through the remainder of the 2021 MLS season on Monday.

The 25-year-old Venezuelan forward arrived on loan from Portuguese power S.L. Benfica as a designated player on Sept. 9, 2020.

Cadiz has two goals and one assist in seven games (five starts) this season. He scored two goals in seven matches in 2020.

“Jhonder has produced positive signs on and off the field during his time with us, and we are encouraged to be able to extend his loan,” Nashville SC general manager Mike Jacobs said in a news release.

Nashville (3-1-6, 15 points) is in sixth place in the MLS Eastern Conference following a 1-1 draw Saturday with CF Montreal.
