FC Dallas goalkeeper Jimmy Maurer has agreed to terms on a new, two-year contract, with a club option for the 2024 season, the club announced today.

Per team policy, terms of the deal will not be disclosed. According to the MLSPA’s latest salary information, Maurer was making $160k in total compensation for 2021. This new deal will likely see him get a decent bump in salary.

Maurer signed with FC Dallas on Dec. 14, 2017. He has appeared in 45 matches across all competitions for the club and recorded 14 shutouts. He made his MLS debut in the 2018 home opener against Real Salt Lake on March 3. Maurer currently ranks first among starting goalkeepers with two penalty saves after facing three in 12 matches this season.

The 32-year old enjoyed a strong 2020 season. He ended the year with a 0.84 GAA and an 80.6 saves percentage, first among starting goalkeepers. He made his MLS Cup Playoffs debut for FC Dallas on Nov. 22 vs. the Portland Timbers and recorded seven saves in his debut. He saved Portland defender Jorge Villafaña’s penalty kick to help FC Dallas advance to the next round of MLS Cup Playoffs.
