“We’re thrilled to have reached an agreement with Brek to return to our club,” chief soccer officer and sporting director Chris Henderson said in a release. “He’s a player that made key contributions on the pitch for Inter Miami throughout our first two seasons and adds talent and valuable experience to the First Team roster. We look forward to seeing him help us reach our goals in 2022.”

The 31-year-old began his professional career at FC Dallas, where he became a top prospect, eventually landing an overseas move to Stoke City. He made three appearances for Stoke completing doing loan stints with Barnsley and Birmingham City that preceded his return stateside.
He returned to MLS in 2015 with Orlando City SC, also recording stints with Vancouver Whitecaps FC and Atlanta United before signing with Miami. At the international level, Shea has been capped 34 times by the US men’s national team, scoring four goals.
