Austin FC have tied Sebastian Driussi down to a long-term contract ahead of the 2023 Major League Soccer season.

Driussi joined Austin from Zenit in 2021 and has scored 30 goals and set up a further 12 in 54 MLS appearances.

He finished second behind Nashville SC’s Hany Mukhtar in the MLS MVP, having netted 25 goals last season.

Leeds United were among the teams linked with Driussi in January, but Austin have secured their talisman’s future ahead of the start of the new campaign, which they start against St Louis SC on February 25.

“I’m delighted to sign a new contract with Austin FC,” Driussi said.

“This club and community have made Austin feel like home for my family and me. I have big ambitions here both personally and for the team, and I’m excited to work with my team-mates, [coach] Josh [Wolff] and the staff to achieve them.”

On the back of Driussi’s outstanding form, Austin reached the Western Conference Final in the MLS Cup playoffs last season, but lost 3-0 to eventual champions Los Angeles FC.

They finished second in the West in their second season in MLS.
