FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution have agreed to transfer forward Adam Buksa to French Ligue 1 side Racing Club de Lens for an undisclosed fee. Buksa will officially join RC Lens at the opening of the Ligue 1 transfer window.
Adam Buksa, the Revolution’s leading scorer in 2022 and during the 2021 Supporters’ Shield-winning campaign, returns to Europe after three Major League Soccer seasons with the Revolution. The 25-year-old striker has recorded 29 goals and eight assists across 64 league appearances, with an additional six goals in Concacaf Champions League, MLS Cup Playoffs, and U.S. Open Cup competition. The Kraków, Poland native claimed the Revolution’s Golden Boot with 16 goals during the 2021 season, helping set a league record with 73 regular season points.
In 2022, Buksa tallied 11 goals in all contests, including a streak of seven consecutive games with a goal before departing for June international duty with the Poland National Team. Since he arrived in New England ahead of the 2020 season, Buksa leads MLS with 25 goals from open play (including playoffs). A hopeful 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar, Buksa’s performance in New England helped him earn eight senior caps, with five goals, for Poland since the start of 2021.
The New England Revolution return to MLS action following the international break on Sunday, June 12 at Sporting Kansas City. The 3:00 p.m. ET start airs nationally on ABC and locally on the radio at 98.5 The Sports Hub and 1260 AM Nossa Radio.
