Eintracht Frankfurt finalized a deal securing defender Heiko Butscher of SC Freiburg today. The 31 year old defensive player passed the medical check sucessfully in the afternoon and signed a contract running until June 2013. The contract is valid in both Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2.
With an unlucky defeat the Eagles went into the winter break after loosing 2-0 away to St. Pauli. Goals by Morena (32') and Kruse (68') plus an outstanding performance by the host's goalkeeper Tschauner helped the Hamburg team to catch up with Eintracht on points in a tight top 5 group in the Bundesliga 2 standings.
