Daniel Edelman, midfielder, signs four-year contract extension with New York Red Bulls

New York Red Bulls have secured the services of midfielder Daniel Edelman for an additional four years, extending his contract through the 2027 MLS season following his impressive 2023 campaign.

The 20-year-old made his MLS debut in the 2022 season after 41 appearances for Red Bulls 2. He made 16 appearances, including 10 starts, in his first season at the top level and excelled in the following term despite playing for two different coaches. The new deal for Edelman also includes an option for the 2028 season.

In 2023, Edelman became a regular in the New York starting XI, making 30 appearances across all competitions and starting 22 MLS games. Edelman’s contributions helped secure the Red Bulls’ place in the MLS Cup playoffs for the 14th consecutive season, a record for a North American professional sports team.

Expressing his delight at the contract extension, Red Bulls head of sport Jochen Schneider stated, “We are very excited to keep Daniel at the club for the long-term and continue with us.”

Schneider continued, “Daniel exemplifies all our core values and has a great winning mentality. He is a player that leads by example and will continue to represent our club in the best way on and off the field.”

During the regular season, Edelman scored one goal and provided one assist, and he continued his strong form into the postseason, contributing an assist in Red Bulls’ 5-2 victory over Charlotte in the Wild Card.

New York, who have already secured the services of former RB Leipzig midfielder Emil Forsberg, are looking ahead to the 2024 season under first-year head coach Sandro Schwarz, aiming to build on the success of the previous season.
