Eintracht Frankfurt has committed offensive player Ansgar Knauff and has a contract until 2028. The Hessians announced this on Friday. The U21 national player was last on loan from runners-up Borussia Dortmund for a year and a half.
“With his performances over the past year and a half, Ansgar has played a key role in our sporting success, which is why there was no question that we wanted to tie him to us as a result,” said Timmo Hardung, at Eintracht Frankfurt from July 1st as sporting director: “We are delighted that Ansgar sees Eintracht as his new sporting home and are convinced of the footballing qualities he has shown so far.”
In the current season, Knauff has played 33 competitive games for Eintracht, six of them in the Champions League. The 21-year-old scored one goal and provided three assists.
In the second half of the previous season, the winger played a major role in the subsequent Europa League triumph with his goals in the quarter-final first leg against FC Barcelona (1-1) and in the semi-final first leg at West Ham United (2-1).
