According to sources, Charlotte FC is signing Colombian winger Kerwin Vargas to a contract extension. The 22-year-old has made 51 MLS appearances for Charlotte FC and has eight career MLS goal contributions (5g/3a).

Capology shows that Vargas’ contract was initially set to expire at the end of this season. This contract extension shows The Crown’s commitment to see Vargas’ continued development in the Carolinas. 

The Colombian recently acquired his green card and will maintain his domestic status through the extended contract length.

According to Transfermarkt, Charlotte has several other roster decisions to make as four others (Kristijan Kahlina, Ashley Westwood*, Andrew Privett**, and Nathan Byrne*) from their starting eleven are out of contract at the end of 2024.

Several other rotation players are also out of contract; Ben Bender, Scott Arfield*, Jaylin Lindsey*, Patrick Agyemang**, and Júnior Urso*.

*One-year contract option

**Two-year contract option
