Eintracht Frankfurt have completed the two-year loan signing of 19-year-old Serbia striker Luka Jovic from Benfica, with an option to buy inserted into the deal.

"We're delighted the loan has gone through, and hope Luka acclimatises as quickly as possible," said Frankfurt sporting director Fredi Bobic. "We can imagine the deal being made permanent."

Jovic broke onto the scene with boyhood club Red Star Belgrade, scoring 12 goals in 42 first-team outings before joining Benfica in February 2016.

He made four senior appearances for the Portuguese champions, including a two-minute cameo in the 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League, and scored four times in a further 18 games for the Benfica reserves.

"I'm really excited and incredibly grateful to Frankfurt for enabling me to make this step," commented Serbia Under-21 international Jovic.

Eintracht have also kitted out youth player Noel Knothe with his first professional contract.

 "It's a dream come true," said the 18-year-old central defender. "I'm incredibly proud that Eintracht have given me a contract and to be able to play in the stadium where I sat in the stands as a kid."
