Eintracht Frankfurt stance on Leeds United defender Robin Koch shared as club chief makes Germany admission

Eintracht Frankfurt want to sign Leeds United defender Robin Koch for the long term after his loan spell ends, according to Bild.

The German newspaper reported on its website on Monday (18 September) that the Germany international is viewed as one for the present and future at the club.

Sports director Markus Krosche is understood to be an admirer of the 27-year-old has tipped him to return to the national side too.

He said, “He’s right. Robin brings a lot of stability and wins a lot of duels. He is calm when building up the game under pressure. Certainly a clear candidate for the national team.”

Sell for good money

The plan for Leeds will be to get promoted and return to the Premier League before deciding on the futures of any of their loanees.

It’s clear that some of them, including Rasmus Kristensen and Brenden Aaronson, are not performing to a very high level.

Their clubs may decide against signing them permanently but it seems like Frankfurt are happy with Koch.

Leeds have signed Joe Rodon on loan and if he fares well for the rest of the season, they may look to buy him permanently.

This would mean that Koch would no longer be needed and they can look to cash in on his services and sell him for good money.

Defenders usually enter their prime in their late 20s and given how highly regarded he is, a deal could very well be done.
