LOS ANGELES — Canadian international midfielder Mark-Anthony Kaye has agreed to a three-year contract extension with Los Angeles FC, with a club option in 2022.

The 24-year-old Kaye started 20 regular season contests during LAFC’s inaugural MLS season before suffering a season-ending ankle injury July 26. He finished with two goals and five assists.

His salary was US$75,000 in 2018.

"Mark is a really important player for us," LAFC head coach Bob Bradley said. "From the start he was open, he listened and he applied our ideas. Before the injury, he was improving week by week. He has a bright future and I believe he will be back better than ever next year."

Kaye has made six appearances for the Canadian national team.

Prior to joining LAFC, Kaye played for Louisville City FC, Toronto FC 2 and York University.
