Paris Saint-Germain’s Kevin Trapp has gone on loan to Eintracht Frankfurt, both clubs have confirmed.
This will be the goalkeeper’s second spell with Eintracht. He was originally brought to the club by their sporting director Bruno Hubner from Kaiserslautern in 2012. He spent three seasons there, appearing in 96 games in all competitions before moving on to PSG. Upon his arrival he took the place between the sticks from then Italian international Salvatore Sirigu, but now he lost it to another former Italian international – Gianluigi Buffon.
With Alphonso Areola more than a capable backup option, Trapp has become surplus to requirements and a move away makes good sense.
Eintracht, however, found themselves in a difficult position with their ‘keeper Frederik Ronnow suffering serious knee injury this summer, and moving to secure Trapp’s return was a logical thing for Hubner to do. He expressed the club’s faith in the future of Ronnow, but also praised the quality and leadership of Trapp who should be a perfect temporary solution.
