FC Cincinnati re-signed winger Joseph-Claude Gyau, defender Nick Hagglund, midfielder Caleb Stanko and goalkeeper Przemyslaw Tyton for the 2021 season.
The new deals announced Wednesday give the team 19 players under contract for the upcoming campaign.
"We look forward to having all four players back on our roster for the next MLS season," general manager Gerard Nijkamp said in a news release. "Even though we did not exercise their player options, we identified each of these four players as good fits for the team that we are building. We look forward to adding to our roster in the coming months ahead of the new season."
Gyau, 28, started 20 of his 21 appearances and scored one goal in 2020.
Hagglund, 28, started eight of 11 games and tallied one goal.
Stanko, 27, started five of 13 games.
