Charlotte FC Defender Jaylin Lindsey Signs New Contract


Charlotte native and Homegrown right back inks long-term deal

CHARLOTTE, NC (Wednesday, April 6, 2022) – Charlotte FC today announced defender Jaylin Lindsey has signed a new contract through 2024 with a Club option for 2025.

The Charlotte native has started all matches and played every minute of the Club’s inaugural season.

“We’re delighted to sign Jaylin to a new long-term contract and we’re happy with his performances for us so far this season. We’ve continually said that we are not just building our roster for the 2022 season, but we want to also have a sustainable, competitive Club for the years ahead and signing young, talented players like Jaylin to long-term contracts is a big part of that plan,” said Sporting Director Zoran Krneta. “Jaylin just turned 22 and will be an important part of our core group of players for many seasons to come. He has undoubtedly earned this new contract and we look forward to seeing him continue his development at his hometown Club.”

Charlotte FC acquired Lindsey on December 12, 2021 during the half-day trade window from Sporting Kansas City in exchange for $100,000 in General Allocation Money (GAM). Up to an additional $225,000 GAM will go to SKC if certain performance-based incentives are met and a 15% sell-on fee is due to SKC for any future transfer.
