Marco Fabian, the Bundesliga's next Mexican star

Just in time for Christmas, Eintracht Frankfurt were able to present their fans with a new star signing from North America in the form of attacking midfielder Marco Fabian.

'A fresh challenge'

The 26-year-old Mexico international, who officially joined the Eagles when the transfer window opened on 2 January, has put pen to paper on a contract through to June 2019.

"Marco's a versatile attacker with an eye for goal. He can operate out wide or down the middle," sporting director Bruno Hübner said of the new recruit, who was brought on board from hometown club CD Guadalajara. Also fresh on the Frankfurt books for the season run-in are Bundesliga old boy Szabolcs Huszti, signed from China's Changchun Yatai, and defensive all-rounder Kaan Ayhan on loan from FC Schalke 04.
