Eintracht Frankfurt sign Dominik Kohr

Eintracht Frankfurt have completed the signing of Dominik Kohr from fellow Bundesliga side Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

The 25-year-old has signed a five-year contract at the Commerzbank-Arena, keeping him at the club until 30 June 2024.

Kohr saw limited first team football during the second half of last season under Peter Bosz.

Eintracht Frankfurt board member Fredi Bobic is confident that the holding midfelder will strengthen their squad, telling the club’s official website:

“Dominik Kohr really will improve our game. One of the positive developments of recent years is that German players of this calibre are now signing for us. His style of play and his personality will be an ideal fit with this team.”

Dominik Kohr is a good tackler who is good at reading the game and makes a number of interceptions to win possession back for his side who will offer good protection in front of the Eintracht Frankfurt back four. He is a former Germany Under-21 international.

He becomes the third new summer signing by the Eagles, following the arrivals of Djibril Sow from Young Boys of Bern and Rodrigo Zalazar from Malaga CF.

Kohr came through the youth system at Leverkusen, making his Bundesliga debut on 21 April 2012. He was sold to FC Augsburg in January 2014 before re-signing for Bayer 04 in June 2017 where he went on to become a regular in their first team until the appointment of Peter Bosz during last season.

The midfielder made 18 Bundesliga appearances (10 starts), recording two assists and picking up four yellow cards. He also played five matches in the UEFA Europa League and two in the DFB Cup.
