Attacker Ansgar Knauff, 21, who has been on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt from BVB since January 2022, is now moving to the Main permanently. All parties reached an agreement this Friday.

The then 19-year-old played his first Bundesliga matches for the BVB first team in 2021. In total, Knauff made nine top-flight appearances for the Black & Yellows (one goal and one assist).

BVB sporting director Sebastian Kehl said: "Ansgar came through the ranks at our youth performance centre and took his first steps in professional football with us. The loan has paid off for him, he gotten a lot of playing time and developed well. We'd like to thank Ansgar for his time at BVB and wish him all the very best for his future endeavours."
