Robin Koch to join Eintracht Frankfurt on loan

The Athletic reports that Robin Koch has chosen Eintracht Frankfurt as the team that will move to on loan this summer.

Koch had attracted interest from both Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen, but the 26-year-old has chosen die Adler as he looks to try and earn a place in the Germany squad for the European Championships next summer.

Frankfurt have been interested in boosting their defensive options after Evan Ndicka and Almamy Touré both left the club on free transfers this summer. The club have already completed the signing of William Pacho from Royal Antwerp, but the arrival of Koch may bring more experience to a defence that missed the presence of the likes of Marvin Hinteregger last season. 

Koch spent three years in England after moving from SC Freiburg to Leeds in 2020 for €13m. The central defender went on to play 77 times for the club before their relegation this summer. 

A move to Frankfurt means Koch is closer to home. The 26-year-old was born in Kaiserslautern and played in their academy on two occasions between a spell in the  Eintracht Trier academy.
