MLS Moves: Frankie Amaya deal finalized

Frankie Amaya, the No. 1 pick in the 2019 MLS Super Draft, got his wish.

The 20-year-old midfielder is leaving FC Cincinnati for the New York Red Bulls, who signed him to a new contract.

FC Cincinnati gets:

-- $500,000 in GAM in 2021;
-- $450,000 in GAM in 2022; and
-- $125,000 in conditional allocation money.

Amaya's new contract -- three years plus a one-club option -- will take effect in 2022.

Amaya was one of the few bright spots for FC Cincinnati in 2020, its second in MLS, when he started 22 games.
“I’m very happy that we have added Frankie to our team,” said Red Bulls coach Gerhard Struber. “His technical skills and ability with the ball will give us more control and more options in transition and in the final third. The task for us as a coaching staff will be to integrate him quickly and immerse him in our tactics and game plan.”
