Eintracht Frankfurt have boosted their midfield options by recruiting Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe from Paris Saint-Germain.
The 21-year-old, who played 10 league games for the French champions in the 2021/22 season, has signed a season-long loan with the UEFA Europa League winners. The club also announced that the deal includes an option for Frankfurt to make the move permanent.
"With Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe we were able to strengthen our midfield in a targeted manner, which means that we see ourselves well equipped for the tasks in three competitions," said Eintracht sporting director, Markus Krösche.
Dina Ebimbe is from just outside Paris, and the France U21 international came through the youth ranks of his local club. The central midfielder spent the 2019-20 season on loan in the French second tier with Le Havre before going up a level and featuring 30 times with Dijon in Ligue 1 the following year. He returned to the French capital to make his debut for PSG last term, playing 14 times in all competitions.
Krösche added: "His versatility, dynamism and game intelligence makes us even more unpredictable and increases our tactical flexibility. Eric Junior has been able to learn a lot alongside world stars over the past year and we hope that he will soon be able to develop his great potential on the pitch with us."
The latest signing comes hot on the heels of Italy defender Luca Pellegrini, who joined on loan from Juventus earlier this month.
