New England Revolution defender Andrew Farrell signed a multi-year contract extension Wednesday.

Since being drafted No. 1 overall by the Revs in 2013, he has made 221 appearances (219 starts) and tallied two goals and eight assists.

Now in his eighth season, the 28-year-old Farrell was an MLS All-Star in 2016 and is a three-time Revolution Defender of the Year.

"I'm thrilled to sign this extension with the Revolution and to continue my career in New England," Farrell said in a release. "I've always felt like New England was a second home for me, thanks in large part to the unwavering support of our fans over the years. Now with the new training facility, Bruce Arena and the coaching staff, and the roster they've put together, I'm more excited than ever to be a part of this club and build something special."

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"Andrew Farrell has been an outstanding player and person for the Revolution over the past seven years," sporting director and head coach Bruce Arena said in a release. "He is a great leader and representative for our club, and has proved to be a durable and consistent player throughout his career. We are pleased that Andrew will remain a Revolution player for many years to come."
