[HOMEGROWN WATCH] The New England Revolution has signed 18-year-old Diego Fagundez, the team’s first-ever homegrown player and the third-youngest player to ever sign an MLS contract, to a multiple-year contract extension.
“We’re pleased that Diego has made the commitment to remain in New England,” Revolution General Manager Michael Burns said in a statement. “While he’s only 18, we believe he has a very bright future with our club and in Major League Soccer.”
Fagundez became the third-youngest player (15 years, 273 days) to sign an MLS contract when he inked a homegrown deal with the Revs in November 2010.

He was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, and raised in Leominster, Mass. He came to the Revs’ first team through the Revolution Academy following a stellar two-year career with the Revs’ Under-16 team.

Since debuting in 2011, Fagundez has made 27 appearances (including 11 starts). He has scored four goals and added three assists. In 2012, he made 20 appearances – including eight starts – scoring two goals and adding two assists.
