NASHVILLE, TN – Nashville SC announced Thursday the acquisition of winger Alex Muyl from the New York Red Bulls in exchange for a 2020 and 2021 international roster spot, and an additional $50,000 in 2021 GAM if Muyl meets certain performances 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 General Manager Mike Jacobs in the press release. “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.”
Muyl joined NYRB as a Homegrown Player in 2016, making 113 regular season appearances in his four seasons. Muyl made at least 24 appearances in each season, and contributed to New York’s Supporters Shield winning campaign in 2018.
Nashville acquired Muyl’s Homegrown rights from New York, meaning that they still have two available spots on the senior roster.
Muyl will wear the number 29 shirt for Nashville. He will begin training with his new club on Monday, August 17.
