Timothy Chandler was born in Frankfurt, he grew up in Eintracht Frankfurt’s youth system, he began his pro career with Eintracht Frankfurt II in the German Regionalliga and now he is headed back to Eintracht Frankfurt after signing a three-year deal.
This has been rumored over the last week, but it is now official and Chandler will be with the club through the 2016-17 season.
Chandler has spent the last four seasons with Nurnberg (four goals in 95 league appearances), but he was looking for a move after they were relegated from the Bundesliga.
Eintracht Frankfurt finished in 13th place out of the 18-team Bundesliga in 2013-14. The Eagles are also one of the original 16 teams of the Bundesliga during its inaugural season in 1963-64 (wikipedia fun fact!).
