Bill Hamid signs new deal with D.C. United

D.C. United goalkeeper Bill Hamid has signed a new deal with the club, meaning his contract will now count against the salary cap. Terms were not disclosed.

Hamid, 20, was United’s first homegrown signing (in 2009) and, consequently, exempt from cap implications. He earned about $47,000 last season.

“Bill has worked hard in the past two years to improve every facet of his game and he is deserving of this new deal,” General Manager Dave Kasper said in a prepared statement. “We look for big contributions from him in the future and we are pleased to have secured his services for years to come.”

Hamid, an Annandale native, started eight MLS matches last year before shoulder surgery ended his season. He has yet to make a first-team appearance this spring, but after playing in two reserve matches, he might soon return to the lineup.
