AC Milan via their website have announced that Portugal international Andre Silva has left the club on a permanent basis to join Eintracht Frankfurt after his one year loan. The original two-year loan has been cut short to facilitate the permanent move for the striker. The striker managed to score 16 goals and provide 5 assists in all competitions convincing the German outfit to sign him outright. Frankfurt on their website have confirmed that the striker has signed a deal with the club until 2023.

Bild are reporting that Frankfurt will pay just 9 million euros for the striker but this low figure could have to do with the deal of Ante Rebic that will likely follow.

The striker joined Milan from FC Porto in the summer of 2017 under the Chinese ownership of the club for about 38 million euros. In his first and only complete season at the club, he managed to 10 goals in all competitions but only 2 of these came in the league. There after, he spent a season on loan at Sevilla and the next one at Frankfurt.
