Adam Buksa has been transferred to RC Lens (French Ligue 1) for an undisclosed fee. New England Revolution fans will have the opportunity to say goodbye to the Polish striker at the Jun. 15 home game against Orlando City SC.
Reports out of Poland on May 29 claimed that Buksa was on the verge of signing with RC Lens. The Bent Musket verified these reports, noting that Buksa had played his last game as a member of the Revolution. A photo of Buksa holding a Lens jersey surfaced later that day. The deal became official on Jun. 7.

The 25-year-old striker amassed 29 goals and eight assists across 64 league appearances. He was the Revs’ leading scorer in 2021 when the club won their first-ever Supporters’ Shield. Buksa leaves the Revolution having collected seven goals and two assists in ten league appearances during the 2022 season.
Buksa expressed his feelings about the move in an Instagram post on Tuesday. He thanked his teammates, coaches, Bible study group members, the technical staff, and the Kraft family. He also showed gratitude towards his girlfriend, friends from MAST’ Boston, and the fans.
Buksa said the post “doesn’t necessarily have to be a goodbye message but rather a ‘see you soon’ one. He finished by saying he’ll be at Gillette Stadium for the Orlando game on Jun. 15th. Buksa will not play in this game.
