Robin Koch (27, 14 appearances and 1 goal in the Bundesliga this season) has signed a permanent deal with Eintracht Frankfurt, the German club announced on Tuesday. The central defender, whose contract with Leeds United expires this summer, has signed a deal until 2027 with the Eagles.
Koch joined Frankfurt on loan from Leeds in July 2023 and quickly established himself as a key player in the team. He has made 14 appearances in the Bundesliga this season, scoring once.
Koch’s signing is a major boost for Frankfurt, who are currently in third place in the Bundesliga and looking to qualify for the Champions League. The German international is a strong and athletic defender who is also good on the ball. He will be a valuable addition to Frankfurt’s squad.
The transfer fee for Koch is reported to be around €20 million.
Robin Koch bleibt langfristig! ❤️🔥
