USMNT midfielder Tyler Adams continues to impress RB Leipzig, and has signed a new deal with the Bundesliga outfit through the 2024/25 season.

The Champions League outfit announced the deal before Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Bayer Leverkusen left them three points off leaders Bayern Munich.

Adams turned 21 on Valentine’s Day and already has an impressive career which includes

  • 10 USMNT caps and a goal
  • Two assists in 17 first team appearances for Leipzig
  • Three goals and 10 assists in 74 appearances for New York Red Bulls

What we’re saying is he’s a key piece for club and country. Here’s Leipzig sporting director Markus Krosche, via the club’s web site:

“Tyler is a very demanding and intelligent player, who has already shown how versatile he is and what a fantastic mentality he brings to the team. We’re delighted that we could secure his services until 2025, even more so because we know that he’s not at the end of his development yet and certainly has the potential to become a key player for us. He suits us and our philosopy perfectly and we’re looking forward to continuing a successful journey with him.”

Adductor injuries and a recent muscle tear have confined Adams to five senior appearances this year, and he’s got a new coach in Julian Nagelsmann. The new deal shows a lot of faith and high regard from the club and coach, and is extremely encouraging given what can happen to players under new bosses.
