Edmond Tapsoba extends Bayer Leverkusen until 2028!

Bayer 04 Leverkusen have agreed a contract extension with central defender Edmond Tapsoba thereby securing a key player at the Werkself over the long term. At the weekend before setting off on international duty, the Burkina Faso international penned a two-year extension to his current deal at Leverkusen to June 30, 2028. The 24-year-old was signed from top-flight Portuguese club Vitoria Guimares in 2020.

Simon Rolfes, the sporting managing director at Bayer 04, assesses Tapsoba’s contract extension as “absolutely showing the way forward for our team and our club. Edmond is one of the best central defenders in the Bundesliga, he definitely has the potential to make it to the top on the international stage,” declared Rolfes. “This contract extension sends out a signal for us. We have ambitious targets at Leverkusen that we want to achieve with great players like Edmond Tapsoba. His quality on the pitch combined with his enormous ease and calm make Edmond a top player and a key member of our squad.”

Tapsoba sees the contract extension as “a commitment to a club I have built up a very emotional connection to since my arrival in January 2020. The environment at Leverkusen is special for me,” emphasised the 1.94 metre tall right-footer. “The support from the fans for the team is fantastic, our squad gets better year by year and I’m absolutely convinced I have the best conditions at Bayer 04 for a successful future.”
