David Affengruber is leaving our Red Bulls and has signed a three-year contract at SK Sturm Graz.
The central defender joined Salzburg in 2013, played in various age groups of the Red Bull Football Academy and helped us to reach the semi-finals of the 2019/20 UEFA Youth League, scoring two goals in nine appearances in the competition. Last season he made a total of six appearances for the professionals and was a key part of the FC Liefering side that finished second in the Austrian second division as a co-operation player.
Sporting director Christoph Freund says on the transfer:
David developed extremely well in recent years due to his extraordinary determination and professional attitude, and he has made appearances for the academy teams, our co-operation partners FC Liefering and our title-winning first team. Following very open discussions we agreed to David's wish to leave for Sturm Graz and arranged a transfer. We will keep on watching David's development very closely, and we wish him all the best for his new challenge!
