Nici Seiwald has been at our club for 13 years - but that time is to come to an end this summer. The 21-year-old from Salzburg is having his exit clause triggered to join RB Leipzig in the German Bundesliga - and has signed a five-year contract there.
From U9 to the academy and the Austrian national team
Nici Seiwald began with us in our U9 team. The dependable midfielder played through all the age groups including at the Red Bull Football Academy (where he won three titles) and co-operation club FC Liefering (making 37 appearances), before joining our serial champions' first-team squad. The local lad has made 95 appearances for us and won four titles (2x Bundesliga champions, 2x Cup winner). Seiwald has also made 10 appearances for the Austrian national team.
