CF Montreal defender Joel Waterman signed a two-year contract through the 2024 season on Thursday.

Financial terms were not disclosed by the team, which holds an option year in 2025 on the deal.

"We are very happy to reward Joel with this new contract," CF Montreal vice president and chief sporting officer Olivier Renard said. "Since his arrival with us, he has done nothing but progress. We hope this new deal will help him reach further milestones in his development."

Waterman, 27, has yet to record a goal or an assist in two matches this season. He has three and eight, respectively, in 61 career MLS matches (59 starts) with CF Montreal.

"I'm really excited to be signing a new deal with the club who believed in me from the beginning. I have enjoyed the last three years here and will continue to do so," Waterman said. "As for my role, it's the same as what I set out coming into the league and that is to improve every day, both personally and with the team. Thank you to the club, the city and most importantly the fans for embracing me. I'm excited for the future."
