Caden Clark RBNY

TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Report

Caden Clark's overseas venture might have to wait, according to a Bild report that the midfielder will be loaned back to the New York Red Bulls from RB Leipzig for the first half of the 2022 season.

Clark was transferred from RBNY to the German Bundesliga sister side back in June, though remained in MLS for the remainder of the 2021 season before his planned departure.

The 18-year-old has been a breakout star for RBNY, notching six goals and five assists across 31 games (20 starts). While his US men's national team debut still awaits, he spent December in an MLS-heavy senior team camp.

This past year, Clark placed eighth on MLSsoccer.com's 22 Under 22 presented by BODYARMOR list.
