The Vancouver Whitecaps extended the contract of forward Cristian Dajome, keeping him at the club through 2024 with an option for 2025. 

The player first joined in 2020, and has since contributed 16 goals and 11 assists. 

”Since arriving at the club, Cristian has proven to be an impact player in various positions and has taken on a larger mentorship role in the locker room, especially with our younger South American players,” sporting director Axel Schuster said in a release. 

“Cristian was in the final year of his contract and we are now excited to confirm he will be with us for a number of years. We look forward to seeing him continue his growth as a leader in our group on and off the pitch.”

The forward has kicked off the 2022 campaign one goal and one assist in five starts, inspiring the Canadian Major League Soccer side to stay afloat in 13th place on the Western Conference table.  

Prior to the American league, Dajome featured for Bogotá FC and Independiente del Valle, where he won the Copa Sudamericana.
