Alex Gordon is staying the face of the Kansas City Royals. MLB writer Jeffrey Flanagan broke the news on Twitter that Gordo will be signing a multi-year deal to stick with KC.

Royals Review reports that the deal is for $70 million over four years.

Royals fans can finally breathe easy knowing that Gordon is staying put.

Gordon became a free agent after turning down an earlier, qualifying offer from the Royals. A report in December said that Gordon had already told the Royals they had no chance of re-signing the prized outfielder. Gordon’s name was tied to free-agent pursuits from several teams, most notably the St. Louis Cardinals, a team in eager search of an outfielder after losing right fielder Jason Heyward to the Chicago Cubs.

Gordon later shot down any suggestion that he had sworn off the Royals, the only Major League Baseball team he’d ever played for since reaching the big leagues in 2007. He has the longest tenure with the Royals of any player on the squad.
