Earthquakes star Chris Wondolowski has signed a four-year contract, with the first year worth $600,000, Sports Illustrated reported Monday night, citing an unidentified source.
The Danville native, once considered a journeyman striker in Major League Soccer, becomes the Quakes' second Designated Player. His salary will increase in 2014, according to SI.com. The first three seasons of the deal are guaranteed.
A Quakes spokesman declined to comment late Monday because the league had yet to announce a deal. Unlike other American sports leagues, MLS signs the players instead of the teams.
Wondolowski, 30, tied the league goal-scoring record last season with 27 and was the Most Valuable Player. His 61 regular-season goals from 2010-12 are the most for any player in MLS history over a three-year period.
Wondolowski made $300,000 last year, according to the MLS Players Union
Wondolowski is the team's only regular striker healthy for the Quakes' season opener Sunday against Real Salt Lake.
