Emile Smith Rowe has joined Bundesliga side RB Leipzig on loan for the remainder of the 2018/19 season.
The 18-year-old has made an impressive impact this season, scoring three goals from his six first team appearances in the Europa League and Carabao Cup. He has also featured in the Premier League matchday squad.
Emile has made great progress through our academy, which resulted in him signing as a scholar in 2016 and then signing a professional contract a year later in July 2017.
The attacking midfielder is also an England youth international, being part of the Under-17 World Cup-winning team in 2017. He moves to RB Leipzig to gain further valuable first-team experience.
Head coach Unai Emery said: “Emile is a promising young player. This move will get him valuable competitive action which is important as he continues his development.”
We wish Emile well in the Bundesliga for the rest of the season.
The loan deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
