TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Trade
The trade became official on Thursday, as Muyl was traded for Nashville’s 2020 and 2021 international picks and an additional $50,000 in GAM in 2021, if Muyl meets certain performance-based metrics.
“Alex displays all the qualities we look for in a player as we continue to build the foundation of our club,” said Nashville SC GM Mike Jacobs in a statement. “He is a proven winner, industrious, and is an absolute nightmare to play against. His ability to create and finish scoring chances makes him a constant threat.”
“Alex is a true professional and he committed fully to our club during his time here,” said Red Bulls head coach Chris Armas. “Alex set a great example of what it means to be a Red Bull player on the field and he was also a leader in the community. As a staff, we’re thankful for our time with Alex and we wish him only the best."
Per Stejskal, RBNY would receive international roster slots for 2020 and 2021 in exchange for Muyl.
