Chris Rolfe is back in MLS and with the same team he last played for before trying his hand in Europe.

Rolfe rejoined the Chicago Fire after spending the last three seasons with Danish club Aalborg BK, the Fire announced Monday. Terms of Rolfe's new deal with the Fire were not disclosed as per club and league policy, but it was announced that he and Aalborg mutually parted ways prior to his arrival in Chicago. 

The 29-year-old's return brings him back to the club where he first started his professional career in 2005. Rolfe is Chicago's second all-time leading scorer, having scored 40 goals while delivering 20 assists in 149 games across all competitions for the Fire.

Rolfe appeared 32 times and scored six goals in his three seasons with Aalborg. He will be available for selection for head coach Frank Klopas in Chicago's upcoming match versus Toronto FC at BMO Field on Saturday. 

What do you think of Rolfe returning to MLS/Chicago? Expecting him to be an imposing figure in the league again? Where should Klopas play Rolfe?
