Eintracht Frankfurt has not yet given up hope that Ansgar Knauff will stay. BVB coach Edin Terzic recently emphasized that the 20-year-old will return to Dortmund in the summer.
"The clear plan is that he returns to us in the summer," Terzic left no doubt at the press conference before the game against Eintracht that the winger would return. (Quoted via Ruhr Nachrichten)
Eintracht sports director Markus Krösche made it clear to the picture: "We want to keep Ansgar. We have already signaled that to him. He feels very comfortable with us, has developed here and will continue to develop."
In Dortmund, the U21 international is under contract until 2024. For a transfer, Eintracht would have to pay a double-digit million fee. According to Bild, a decision about Knauff's future is not expected until spring.
In the direct clash between Frankfurt and Dortmund on Saturday, Knauff will not be part of the game. The youngster is out with a hamstring injury.
