Chelsea have confirmed that defender Michael Hector has left the club to join Eintracht Frankfurt on a season-long loan.
The 24-year-old spent most of his career on loan having enjoyed loan spells at Bracknell Town, Didcot Town, Havant & Waterlooville, Oxford City, Horsham, Dundalk, Barnet, Shrewsbury Town, Aldershot Town, Cheltenham Town, Aberdeenv, Reading and now Eintracht Frankfurt.
He says he is "very excited" to feature in the Bundesliga.
"Frankfurt is a cool city, the first impressions are very good," he told the club's official website.
"I am very excited about the new job and I cannot wait., I hope for a successful time here."
Sporting director Bruno Hubner added: "With Michael Hector we have the player type we were looking for.
"He is athletic, tall and strong in the air. He also has a lot of development potential. It's great that we managed to steer a player from England to Germany in times like this.
"Normally it's vice versa. It's nice that Michael Hector has decided to join us."
