American midfielder Paxten Aaronson has committed his future to Eintracht Frankfurt by extending his contract through the 2027-28 season. Alongside this renewal, he has been loaned to Utrecht in the Netherlands for the 2024-25 campaign.

Turning 21 in August, Aaronson began his professional career with Major League Soccer’s Philadelphia Union in 2021 before moving to Frankfurt in January 2023.

His Bundesliga debut came in the second half of the 2022-23 season, where he made seven appearances, followed by seven more in the first half of the 2023-24 season, though starting just once.

In February 2024, Aaronson was loaned to Vitesse in the Eredivisie, where he made an impact by scoring four goals in 14 league matches, all of which he started. His total appearances for Frankfurt across various competitions now stand at 22.

Despite his youth, Aaronson has already earned one senior cap for the U.S. national team in a friendly against Colombia in January 2023. He has also been actively involved in the under-23 team’s preparations for the Olympics.

Reflecting on Aaronson’s progress, Frankfurt’s sporting director Timmo Hardung highlighted the positive impact of his loan spell at Vitesse: “The loan move to Vitesse Arnhem and the playing time he’s had there has given him a boost, as we hoped.

For him it’s now important that he sticks at it and continues to play regularly. In Utrecht he has a good environment and a good club, where he can take the next step in his development.”

Paxten’s older brother, Brenden Aaronson, aged 23, is also a remarkable figure in American soccer, regularly representing the U.S. national team. Last season, Brenden was on loan from Leeds United to Union Berlin, continuing the family’s strong presence in both American and European football circles.
