Despite interest from his parent club Dortmund, German-born Ghanaian Ansgar Knauff will extend his loan stay at Eintracht Frankfurt.
Since joining the Eagles in the winter transfer window, the 20-year-old winger has had a successful season.
Knauff, who was born in Gottingen to a German mother and a Ghanaian father, has played a key role in Frankfurt’s run to the Europa League semi-final.
His goal in the first leg of their semi-final match against West Ham gives the German team the advantage after their win in Londo.
His talents have put him on the radar of several clubs, with Dortmund, his original club, keen on a quick reunion.
However, the Germany U21 international is set to return to the Yellow and Blacks after completing his 18-month loan.
Following the player’s swift adaption at Frankfurt, coach Oliver Glasner commented, “We thought he’d fit in well with us.” “He’s a powerful fighter who targets the areas behind the chain.
He went on to say, “The way he takes the ball and then hits it was terrific.”
Knauff has made 15 appearances with the Eagles in all competitions, scoring three goals.
