The Columbus Crew has announced that midfielder Eddie Gaven is retiring after 11 seasons in Major League Soccer.

The 27-year-old concludes a career that includes 278 appearances, 51 goals and 37 assists in MLS regular-season competition. Since joining the Crew from the New York/New Jersey MetroStars in 2006, Gaven helped the club to the 2008 and 2009 Supporters' Shields, along with the 2008 MLS Cup title against his former club.

His final game was on May 29 when he sustained a season-ending knee injury.

He started 198 games with the Crew over eight seasons - and was never issued a red card in his career.

The club also parted ways with midfielder Matias Sanchez and forward Aaron Horton.
