(Portland, OR) -- Diego Valeri will indeed be back in Timber green in 2020. The club announced Monday they had re-signed the Argentinian to a multi-year extension using Targeted Allocation Money. His future in Portland was in doubt after the two sides had reached an impasse during contract negotiations last year. By using the targeted funds, and with the departure of Brian Fernandez, the club now has room for two designated player spots. He had eight goals and 16 assists last season.
