A move that definitely keeps the Columbus Crew contenders finally became official today. The club announced the re-signing of midfielder/striker Guillermo Barros Schelotto to his forth season with the Black-and-Gold.

Schelotto will not occupy a Designated Player slot in 2010, thus meaning his new contract is a lot cheaper than what he was making last season.

The Crew really needed the veteran back for another year due to his high production he’s done over the last three years since joining the Crew. So far he has scored 26 goals and tallied 39 assists in 78 regular-season and playoff games. Not a bad stat-line for any player.

While the Crew didn’t have the greatest Draft last week I think this re-signing still keeps them in the top half of teams in the league going into this year. No doubt with his leadership on board this club will be a contender yet again in 2010.
