Ryan Malone (born August 11, 1992) is an American soccer player who currently plays for German club 1. FC Lokomotive Leipzig.


Malone was part of Springfield College team before signing with 1. FC Magdeburg on June 1, 2015.[1][2] He made his debut in a 3–0 win against VfL Osnabrück on September 15, 2015, playing for six minutes,[3] his first goal came in a 1:0 win against Wehen Wiesbaden. At the end of the season, Magdeburg decided not to extend the contract; in manager Jens Härtel's opinion, Malone needed regular soccer to develop and the club were unable to guarantee that.[4]

During the summer break, Malone signed a contract with Regionalliga Südwest side Stuttgarter Kickers.[5]

On June 20th 2017;, It was announced Malone had moved on from Stuttgarter, and joined 1. FC Lokomotive Leipzig for a two year deal.[6]
