Born in Le Mans in France central defender Simone Falette most recently played at FC Metz where he recorded 40 competitive matches last season (3 goals). He also had spells at Stade Brest 29, Stade Laval and FC Lorient (174 matches across competitions).

Eintracht board member Fredi Bobic: "We observed Simon for a while now and we were really keen on gettting him on board. It took a while to sort out the deal but the wait will be worth it. He is a strong defender who is also capable to initiate the game towards the attack."

Simon Falette: "When the offer came in I did not have to think about it very much - it is a great challenge for me to play for a Bundesliga team. The people in charge at Eintracht are following an exciting strategy and I am glad to be able to support it."
