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.
