Red Bulls Deal Away Anatole Abang, Again

The curious case of Anatole Abang, a talented forward from Cameroon who has been with the Red Bull organization since 2015, but along the way he was transferred on loans to three different clubs, plus loaned to Red Bull II.

The Red Bulls yesterday completed his transfer outright to Chinese club Nantong Zhiyun FC.

"We wish Anatole all the best in this next step," said Red Bulls Sporting Director Denis Hamlett. "We are pleased to have found a transfer that is beneficial for both the player and the club."

Abang, 22, made 25 appearances for the Red Bulls since signing in 2015 and saw time on loan with several clubs, most recently FC Astra Giurgiu in Romania.

During 2015 through 2019 Abang scored 4 goals for the Red Bulls in 25 appearances.
