Eintracht agree to sign Bröndby goalkeeper Frederik Rönnow
Eintracht Frankfurt have agreed a deal to sign Denmark international goalkeeper Frederik Rönnow on a four-year contract, subject to a medical.
Eintracht are on the verge of completing their first new signing for the 2018/19 campaign, having agreed a deal with Bröndby IF for the transfer of Frederik Rönnow. The Denmark international goalkeeper, who will complete his medical in Frankfurt in the coming weeks, will join the Eagles this summer on a contract until 30 June 2022.
"We're very happy"
"We've been able to reach a positive conclusion to our talks with Bröndby IF and have also agreed terms with the player," said board member Fredi Bobic, who had travelled to Copenhagen with sporting director Bruno Hübner to discuss the terms of the deal with the Bröndby hierarchy. "We've ticked off an important box by signing Frederik Rönnow. We're very happy with his qualities as a player and as a person."
Born in the Danish port city of Horsens on 4 August 1992, Rönnow started out at Stensballe IK before joining AC Horsens as a teenager. The 1.90-metre custodian was loaned out to Esbjerg FB at the start of the 2013/14 campaign, going on to make 18 appearances in the Danish top flight and a further eight outings in the UEFA Europa League.
After featuring just 11 times for second-tier Horsens the following season, he was snapped up by top-flight giants Bröndby IF, who are coached by former VfB Stuttgart and Leipzig boss Alexander Zorniger. Rönnow has clocked up 110 competitive appearances for Bröndby to date, as well as seven international outings for his country.
