Janis Blaswich is staying! 

Our goalkeeper has signed a one-year contract extension, meaning his deal is now valid until 2026.

Janis Blaswich 

  • “I experienced so much in my first year at RB Leipzig, featuring regularly in the Bundesliga, the Champions League and in the DFB-Pokal, where we won the title, plus we recently lifted the Supercup trophy. I’m delighted that we have now agreed on a one-year contract extension.

    We have a great team here and a fantastic group of goalkeepers. We push each other to keep on improving. As a club, we have big plans for the coming years and I’m extremely proud that I will be an important part of it all in the long term. On top of that, my family and I feel right at home here in Leipzig.”

Max Eberl

  • “Janis fully deserves this contract extension. He’s performed extremely well for us over the last year since joining, and he provides our team with security and is capable of making world-class saves too. He’s also an important person for the dressing room thanks to his experience and personality.

40 games and DFB-Pokal winner 

Janis Blaswich joined RB Leipzig in June 2022 from Dutch side Heracles Almelo. He made his RBL debut on 20th August 2022 in the 2-1 away defeat to Union Berlin. After Péter Gulácsi unfortunately tore his ACL against Celtic in the Champions League, Janis took over as the regular goalkeeper and has played 40 competitive games for the club, keeping 14 clean sheets in the process. He also saved a penalty against Borussia Mönchengladbach on matchday 24 of last season. His first campaign with the club ended in excellent fashion with the DFB-Pokal title in May 2023.
