Juan Agudelo has confirmed he will return to Major League Soccer’s New England Revolution in 2015.

The former United States men’s national team striker announced his decision on Thursday, essentially ending his journey to find a new home after failing to sign with a European club last year.

"I am extremely happy to officially sign minutes ago and be back with the best teammates and coaching staff #NERevs," Agudelo told his followers on Twitter.

According to Goal USA, Agudelo completed a deal to rejoin the Revs after signing a four-year contract that sees him return to a New England side coming off an MLS Cup run in 2014. Agudelo’s new deal is reportedly a non-designated player contract in the range of $400,000-a-year.  

The 22-year-old was available as a free agent following Stoke City’s decision to terminate his contract on the back of failing to secure a work permit issues on two separate occassions. Agudelo’s loan stint with Dutch side FC Utrecht ended last May.

Agudelo, who left New England at the end of the 2013 MLS season, made his international bow as a 17-year-old and has earned 18 caps.
