Ebobisse, 23, has tallied 17 goals and nine assists in 72 games (45 starts) across all competitions since Portland selected him with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft.

"Jebo is a talented player who has developed into a great example for other young players," said Timbers head coach Giovanni Savarese. "His versatility at the point of attack will be a strength and his abilities complement our attacking group this year. I am very pleased that Jebo will continue to be a part of the Portland Timbers."
