Campbell Secures Extension With Valour
While Canadian Premier League side Valour FC had already confirmed that midfielder Dante Campbell would be back for 2024, the club has now announced an extension that includes an option for 2025.
The 24-year-old was a regular feature under Phillip Dos Santos last season, making 26 appearances throughout a campaign that saw the club concede less goals than playoff-clinchers York United, but still finish dead last in the league.
The former Toronto FC II prospect has proven himself a versatile player throughout the calendar year, however, playing as a full-back on both flanks, a defensive and central midfielder, and even a centre-back when asked to.
The utilitarian player had returned to the side this year following a loan spell in 2020’s Island Games, also procuring one goal and two assists in the season now passed.
He spent the year prior with LA Galaxy II in the USL Championship, where he featured regularly as a substitute. He recorded one goal and one assist through thirty appearances stateside.
He was one of only seven players confirmed to be returning in Winnipeg-based club’s end of season roster update, with the return of his former Island Games teammate Shaan Hundal being announced shortly after.
The additional club option for 2025 gives Valour FC some nice roster flexibility and looks to be good forward-thinking from a side hoping to turn its fortunes around.
