RB Leipzig have extended striker Yussuf Poulsen’s contract for a further year, until 2022. The 24-year-old fan favourite has been at Leipzig since 2013, and is our current record appearance maker, playing 209 times for the club.
Yussi came to Die Roten Bullen in 2013 from Danish side Lyngby BK, going on to celebrate two promotions in 2014 and 2016, as RBL went from the third division all the way to the Champions League. Along the way, Yussi has claimed 54 goals and 36 assists for the club.
This season, the Denmark international has scored 12 goals from 25 Bundesliga games, his best-ever season tally. He has also scored once in each of the DFB-Pokal, the Europa League and the Europa League qualifying stages.
Here’s to more success together, Yussi!
