Contract extension! Tyler Adams joins Konrad Laimer as the next Red Bull to extend his contract. Our American youngster Tyler Adams signs until 2025!
The 21-year-old midfielder joined from the New York Red Bulls back in January 2019 and instantly became a key part of the squad. He made the switch from the MLS to the Bundesliga with ease, making ten competitive appearances in the league last season.
Unfortunately he missed almost the entire Hinrunde this season due to a long term injury, but made his comeback in the 3-1 win over FC Augsburg just before the winter break.
Tyler is now back fit and giving his all for RB Leipzig once again!
We're looking forward to the future with our #14!
