Major League Soccer club Columbus Crew are reportedly in negotiation talks with Ghana international Harrison Afful ahead of a possible contract extension according to Goal.
Afful has been with Crew for approximately four years and his deal has run its course which means he could depart from the club if they don't reach an agreement.
Teammate and fellow Ghanaian Jonathan Mensah has had his contract extended for an additional year which will see him remain at the club until December 2020.
"Crew SC exercised the options of defenders Waylon Francis, Hector Jimenez and Jonathan Mensah; as well as midfielders Luis Argudo, Pedro Santos and Wil Trapp," the club announced in a statement on their official website.
"The club is also currently in negotiations with out-of-contract defender Harrison Afful."
This year alone, Afful has managed to make 22 league appearances for the MLS outfit, featuring in the starting lineup for all those games.
“As we continue preparations for the 2020 season, our goal is to build a roster that can compete for championships,” said Crew SC President and General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko.
“We want to build on the work done by our technical staff and players this season as we continue to solidify our identity in this new era of our Club.
"While it is never easy to make difficult personnel decisions at the beginning of each offseason, we are confident the roster will continue to evolve in the coming months as we look toward 2020 and beyond.”
