Official | Evan Ndicka leaves Eintracht Frankfurt

Eintracht Frankfurt have announced that Evan Ndicka will leave the club for free this summer with his contract expiring.

Despite negotiations between the club and the player, no extension has been found and Ndicka will be free to join any of the growing list of clubs keen to take him on board. It will signal the end of a five-year stay with the Eagles after his move from Ligue 2 side AJ Auxerre in 2018 for €5.5m.

During Ndicka’s spell in Frankfurt, the French defender was able to record 183 appearances for Die Adler where he would score 12 goals and collect 10 assists. However, it is for his defensive attributes that Ndicka has caught the attention of many of the elite European clubs.

On the Frenchman’s departure, Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Markus Krösche said: “We would’ve liked to see Evan at Eintracht Frankfurt in the future, so it is a shame that he’s leaving us.” 

Krösche would also comment on the success Ndicka has experienced at the club, including their triumph over Rangers in the 2021/22 Europa League final: “At the same time, we would like to thank Evan for five years together, in which he’s performed regularly for us from the start at a young age. He’s played his part in Eintracht Frankfurt’s sporting success and positive development. We wish him all the best for the future.”

Ndicka will leave Frankfurt alongside three other players including Daichi Kamada and Almamy Touré. While the Eagles will look to replace the void left by Ndicka, they do have the arrival of Willian Pacho from Royal Antwerp to help cover the departure of the French defender.
