RB Leipzig have completed the signing of American midfielder Tyler Adams, who arrives from New York Red Bulls. The 19-year-old has agreed a long-term deal until the summer of 2023 and will official become a Leipzig player when the transfer window opens again next month.
Adams, who is a defensive midfielder, is excited about the move and is looking forward to following in the footsteps of some fellow Americans, who have impressed in the Bundesliga.
“If I think about the top leagues in the world, I think about the Bundesliga,” Adams said. “A lot of youngsters have made the next step in their development here. “RB Leipzig are all about that, so it’s a great step for me.
“For me, it’s the chance to prove myself at the highest level and measure myself against my friends and compatriots, Christian Pulisic of Dortmund and Weston McKennie of Schalke.”
