Eintracht Frankfurt sign striker Ante Rebic on loan from Fiorentina

Eintracht Frankfurt have signed Croatia striker Ante Rebic on loan from Fiorentina.

Rebic has made the switch on an initial one-year deal but the Bundesliga side also have the option to buy the 22-year-old.

The forward will link back up with compatriot Niko Kovac at the Commerzbank Arena, having played under the Eintracht coach for both Croatia Under-21s and Croatia.

Rebic, who has won eight caps for his country and played in the 2014 World Cup, said on the club's official website: "I am delighted that the transfer has worked out. I've already been at the Commerzbank Arena and I liked it very well.

"I know Niko Kovac very well. He called me up for Croatia U21s, and later the senior team. Now I am looking forward to working with him again and want to repay the trust shown in me.''
