Yvon Mvogo has signed a new contract at the club running until 2023. The 26-year-old goalkeeper has also joined PSV Eindhoven on a two-year deal in order to gain more match practice. PSV are currently coached by Roger Schmidt, who was at Bayer 04 Leverkusen between 2014 and 2017. The loan cannot be extended by the two years.
The Swiss international (2 caps) joined RB Leipzig from BSC Young Boys in 2017. He has made 19 competitive appearances in his three years in Leipzig, keeping four clean sheets.
Sporting Director Markus Krösche:
- "Despite a lack of minutes, Yvon has developed well over the last few years. He needs game time in order to carry on improving though, which is why we've let him move on loan to PSV. We are well-stocked in the goalkeeper position, but we also believe in Yvon, so we've decided to make this decision. We would like to wish him all the best at PSV!"
Goalkeeper Yvon Mvogo:
- "I feel right at home at RB Leipzig and in the city itself, which is why I was happy to renew my contract. At the same time, I want to be playing football and want to be improving. I saw a chance to do this at PSV. I'm looking forward to moving to Eindhoven and I will give my all to help the club reach their goals. I also hope Leipzig have a successful season!"
