Eintracht Frankfurt have completed the signing of Netherlands international Donny van de Beek on a loan to the end of the season with the option of a permanent transfer.
Van de Beek is a graduate of Ajax's famed youth academy and burst onto the international football scene as the Amsterdam club battled into the UEFA Champions League semi-finals in 2018/19.
The central midfielder scored 41 goals and provided 34 assists in 175 appearances for Ajax before signing for Manchester United in summer 2020. After over three years in the English Premier League, he is now set for Bundesliga action with Eintracht Frankfurt on a six-month loan deal with the option of a permanent transfer in the summer.
Frankfurt's director of football Markus Krösche said: "Donny van de Beek is a perfect match for our playing style and is a key part of our team's puzzle. He brings lots of international experience with him that our young players can benefit from. Donny exudes goal threat and should help our attackers to get into promising positions."
Eintracht Frankfurt are currently sixth in the Bundesliga table after a promising first half-season under the guidance of Dino Toppmöller that has also seen them make the UEFA Conference League knockout stages - where they are to face Union Saint-Gilloise.
The Eagles resume their Bundesliga campaign with an exciting clash at RB Leipzig in Matchday 17 on Saturday 13 January.
