Orlando City SC signed defender Rodrigo Schlegel to a two-year contract through 2024.

The deal announced Wednesday includes club options in 2025 and 2026 for the 25-year-old Argentina native.

“Rodrigo has continually proven himself an invaluable member of our Club, both on the field and off,” said Orlando City general manager Luiz Muzzi. “He’s engrained himself into our team from the very beginning of his time with us with an incredible work ethic and dedication to achieving the team’s goals. He’s been a vital part of our culture and project here in Orlando and we’re so happy to have him here for the years to come.”

Schlegel has recorded one goal in 62 MLS matches (46 starts) since joining the Lions in 2020.

He helped Orlando City set a franchise record with 10 shutouts in 2022.
