Yvon Mvogo Joins PSV on Loan, Signs New Leipzig Deal

Back-up goalkeeper Yvon Mvogo will be joining PSV on loan just after signing an extension with RB Leipzig that will keep him with the club until 2023. The move is not surprising considering the form of Peter Gulacsi but the eventual starter will need minutes. The move will take Mvogo away from Leipzig for all of the 2020-21 season.

"I want to be playing football and I want to be improving," said Mvogo. "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."

The 26-year-old Swiss goalkeeper joined the club in 2017 but has only made 19 total appearances across that time. Despite this, the team feels confident in his future in East Germany as does Mvogo who decided to stay with the team despite his lack of minutes.

"Yvon has developed well over the last few years," said Sporting Director Markus Krosche. "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."

Despite his young age, Mvogo has a tremendous resume with the Swiss team Young Boys. For four season he made a total of 154 appearances and wowed several Bundesliga sides before ending up in Leipzig. Whether or not this is a future move away from Germany remains to be seen. However, the expectation is that the situation may change after this season and Mvogo will be welcomed back in a more prominent role.

Rumor: Dru Yearwood to be Traded to Nashville SC

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced More trade rumors are circulating as Red Bulls midfielder Dru Yearwood is linked to a move to Nashville SC according to Tom Bogert of the Athletic . What Red Bull will receive for such a trade remains to be seen. However expectations are that the move will be finalized by the end of next week. Yearwood joined New York in 2020 from Brentford in England. Along the way he has made 86 appearances for the club, including 55 starts. In 2021 and 2022 he made 18 starts, scoring three goals and three assists, his total output for the club in Major League Soccer.  In 2023 Yearwood found his position in the club to vary greatly. At times he played in a defensive midfield role next to Frankie Amaya and other times higher up the field, almost as a second forward. After the departure of Cristian Casseres Jr. earlier in the year, it appeared as if Yearwood's minutes would increase. However Daniel Edelman stepped into the role, relegating Yearwood to more

Merced Red Bull News Network had the chance to communicate with former New York Red Bulls head coach Gerhard Struber, now the manager of Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga. Struber was with New York from the end of the 2020 campaign through to the early part of 2023. Along the way he secured two playoff berths, a seventh and fourth place finish in 2021 and 2022 respectively. While his time was ended abruptly in MLS, his memories of the American version of the game have helped him prepare for such a monumental task in Europe. You spent nearly three seasons in Major League Soccer with the New York Red Bulls, what did you learn from that experience that has made you a different coach at Red Bull Salzburg? Struber: In addition to the sporting aspects, there is a lot that I was able to gain from my work at New York Red Bulls. Any work in a foreign country not only brings you closer to the language, but also to the culture and mentality of the pe
