FC Dallas has signed veteran defender Ugo Ihemelu to a contract extension through 2015.

Terms of the deal announced Thursday weren't disclosed.

Ihemelu was acquired by FC Dallas from Colorado in 2009 and helped his hometown team reach the MLS Cup last year, when FC Dallas lost to Ihemelu's former team.

After starting his career as one of the league's top rookies with the Los Angeles Galaxy in 2005, Ihemelu was traded to the Rapids two years later.

Ihemelu has started 15 of 17 FC Dallas games this season, recording two goals and an assist. He grew up in the Dallas area and played for FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman at SMU.
