It is now confirmed. The incredible time of Karim Adeyemi as a Red Bull is ending with the current season, as the 20-year-old striker is to move to Borussia Dortmund. He has signed a contract lasting until 2027 with the side currently second in the German Bundesliga.
From FC Liefering to the UEFA Champions League
The German with incredible pace joined Salzburg in summer 2018 as a 16-year-old youth player, and first appeared for our co-operation club FC Liefering. His 15 goals and 12 assists in 35 appearances there soon saw him move on to greater things.
Karim has made 92 appearances for us so far, in which he has scored 33 goals and provided 23 assists. He is top scorer in the Austrian Bundesliga currently this season with 19 goals, and he also scored four times in our incredible UEFA Champions League campaign.
Adeyemi was able to win six titles in his four years in Salzburg (3x Bundesliga, 3x Cup), and has more than made a name for himself in his homeland. He helped Germany U21 to win the European championship, before scoring on his debut for the German national team at the age of 19.

Karim Adeyemi will meet up with several former Salzburg men at his new club in Marco Rose, Alexander Zickler, Rene Maric and Patrick Eibenberger (athletics' coach) plus Erling Haaland.
