Jordan Morris is reportedly sticking around home for the prime of his career.

The 24-year-old striker, healing from ACL surgery, has a new five-year deal with the Seattle Sounders that will pay him around $1 million per season, according to The Athletic.

Morris leapt into the public consciousness while still in college at Stanford, when Jurgen Klinsmann called him into USMNT camp in 2014.

The industrious striker has since earned 25 caps, scoring five goals, spurning interest from abroad including a 2016 trial with Werder Bremen to stay with his hometown Sounders.

Morris tore his ACL in CONCACAF Champions League play this Spring, missing the entire MLS season. He has 17 goals and six assists in 70 career appearances for Seattle.
