ADAM SIGN CONTRACT EXTENSION WITH RB LEIPZIG
Tyler Adams has signed a two-year contract extension with German outfit RB Leipzig. Tyler Adams joined Leipzig in January 2019 from New York Red Bulls. Another football club owned by the Red Bull organizations.
Tyler Adams initial contract was set to expire in 2023, but the club has made a move to secure the player by offering him a two-year extension. The new deal will take Adams through 2025. Adams has impressed since joining RB Leipzig in January 2019, leading to the club handing him a contract extension.
Adams, 21, became an integral part of Leipzig side in the second half of last season. He was a regular in the starting 11 before he got injured in German cup, against Bayern Munich. He returned later in February, but he was unfortunate with injury again. But Leipzig have seen enough from the player to offer him fresh terms.
Adams was attracting strong interest from English premiership side Everton. The Merseyside club were very keen to add the player to their rank in January. But injury and lack of will to sell by Leipzig made the move to collapse. Leipzig are aware that Everton might return for the player in summer, hence they acted quickly by tying him down with a long contract.
Four players from USMNT have represented Everton in the past, legendary goalkeeper Howard, who joined from Manchester United, made 344 league appearances for the club across 10 years. Joe-Max Moore, Brian McBride and Landon Donovan are the other American to have represented the Magpies. It is unknown whether Everton will return for Adams in the future.
Adams told the official website that he is delighted about his new contract and he is looking forward to the future with optimism.
The club also revealed that they are happy to tie Adams to the long term.
