Sasa Kalajdzic joins Eintracht Frankfurt on loan

Sasa Kalajdzic, the Wolverhampton striker, has joined Eintracht Frankfurt on a loan deal until the season’s conclusion.

After leaving Stuttgart for Wolverhampton one and a half years ago, Sasa Kalajdzic will make a return to the Bundesliga.

Bild reports that Eintracht Frankfurt has finalized an agreement to secure the striker on loan from Wolverhampton for the remainder of the season.

Kalajdzic’s agent, Sascha Empacher, hinted at the confirmation of the deal, expressing optimism when questioned about Frankfurt’s interest and stating, “it looks good.”

The towering striker, who previously scored 24 goals in 60 appearances for Stuttgart from 2019 to 2022, may make his debut for Eintracht against RB Leipzig in the upcoming week.

In August 2022, the Midlands club acquired the Austria international from Stuttgart for £15m, but he sustained a severe knee injury during his debut. This season, the 26-year-old made a comeback and netted three goals in 13 appearances, three of which were starts.

Wolves sporting director Matt Hobbs said: “Sasa has been incredibly unlucky.

“He suffered an injury on his debut after recovering from a previous setback. Despite his efforts to regain fitness, the strong form of our forwards has limited his playing time.

“After the best part of two years out injured, the best thing for Sasa and us long-term is for him to go and get lots of football, in a league he knows well and one which is similar to the Premier League in terms of physicality and style of play.

“Sasa has shown he’s a natural finisher, but after his injuries, he needs to trust his body again. I hope he goes there and does really well, plays lots of games, and is able to help us next season.”
