Kicker reports that Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen are the only two teams left in the race for Leeds United defender Robin Koch.
Despite the financial benefit of staying in the Premier League with either Manchester United or Newcastle United, the 26-year-old is likely to be a backup or not a regular starter and with the European Championships on the horizon next summer, Koch wants to fight for a place in the squad. In the Bundesliga, the 26-year-old is more likely to catch the attention of the national team coach
As well as game time, Koch also wants to have a bigger leadership role at his future team, something that is again not guaranteed if he were to stay in the Premier League.
Koch joined Leeds in 2020 from Freiburg for €13m, his stay in England will come to an end this summer as he will likely leave on a loan before joining his future club on a free transfer once his contract expires in 2024.
