Eintracht Frankfurt sign Rode from Borussia Dortmund
Sebastian Rode has completed his return to Eintracht Frankfurt, signing a five-year deal after leaving Borussia Dortmund.
Rode spent the second half of last season on loan at Eintracht, making 20 appearances in all competitions.
And last season's Europa League semi-finalists have now sealed a permanent deal for the midfielder, with no transfer fee disclosed by either side.
Rode spent four years in Frankfurt earlier in his career before joining Bayern Munich for a short spell in 2014.

"I've seen how strong Eintracht have become in the last six months," Rode told the club's official website. "I'm happy to remain a part of that."
Rode could miss the start of the new Bundesliga season as he is still recovering from a knee injury sustained in the Europa League last-four tie against Chelsea.
