Alphonso Davies signs new deal with Bayern Munich through 2025


Canadian soccer star Alphonso Davies has signed a two-year contract extension with Bayern Munich that will keep the teenager with the German powerhouse through June 2025.

A winger who has found a home at left back, the 19-year-old has become a fixture with Bayern since joining the German champions from the Vancouver Whitecaps.

The Ghana-born, Edmonton-raised Davies was signed by Bayern in the summer of 2018 and started to train with his new team in November after the end of the Whitecaps season.

Davies has won 17 caps for Canada with five goals and seven assists.
