Ghanaian attacker Ansgar Knauff to stay at Frankfurt for another season

German-born Ghanaian Ansgar Knauff will continue his loan spell at Eintracht Frankfurt despite interest from parent club Dortmund after an immediate return

The 20-year-old winger is enjoying a good campaign since joining the Eagles in the winter transfer window.

Knauff, who was born to a German mother and a Ghanaian father in Gottingen, has been instrumental to Frankfurt’s journey to the Europa League semi-final.

His goal against West Ham in the first leg of their semi-final clash hands the German side the advantage after their victory in Londo.

His performances has seen him pop up on the radar of several clubs with parent team Dortmund interested in an immediate reunion.

However, the Germany U21 star is expected to complete his 18 month loan deal before returning to the Yellow and Blacks.

“We knew that he would fit in well with us,” said Frankfurt coach Oliver Glasner following the player’s quick adaptation at the club. “He’s strong and attacks the spaces behind the chain.

“The way he takes the ball and then hits it was great,” he added.

Knauff has made 15 appearances in all competitions for the Eagles and has scored three goals.
