RB Leipzig confirm new deal for Henrichs

RB Leipzig have tied Benjamin Henrichs down to a new long-term contract.

Benjamin Henrichs has signed a new long-term contract with RB Leipzig. 

The German international is now contracted to Die Roten Bullen until 2028.

“Benjamin Henrichs is a special player because he's very flexible and always delivers.He's also extremely important to us in the dressing room as a leader and link between players and management. That's why Benny has been on the team council since this season and is a key contact for our young players - also because of his multilingual ability,” said RB Leipzig sporting director Rouven Schröder. 

"We've always stressed that we would very much like to extend Benny's contract and that we're counting on him in the future because he lives the club with his philosophy and his football.   
 
"We've discussed the next step openly and it's quite normal that he was considering other options at this stage of his career. In the end, however, the overall package convinced him of RB Leipzig with our ambitions and goals for the next few years - Benny will continue to play a very important role here. With this contract extension, we can answer a very important squad question positively before the last game of the season."

Henrichs joined RB Leipzig from AS Monaco in 2020 on a one-year loan deal that was later made permanent.
