Eintracht Frankfurt have confirmed the signing of winger Jens Petter Hauge on loan from AC Milan for the whole of the upcoming Bundesliga season.

In their opening game of the new league season on Saturday, Frankfurt are 19/4 to win at Borussia Dortmund, with the hosts 9/20 to come out on top, while the draw is priced at 4/1.

Jens Petter is capable of beating players in one-on-one situations and is a goal threat from every attacking position.

Norway international Hauge will spend the next season with Frankfurt, who have an obligation to buy the forward for around €12million at the end of the campaign.

Hauge joined Milan last October and enjoyed a modest debut campaign, scoring five times in 24 matches across all competitions.

The 21-year-old made his senior debut for Bodo/Glimt back in 2016, completing a hat-trick in a cup fixture after coming on as a substitute.

And Frankfurt will hope for more performances like that from their new signing, who a member of the board has described as an "important piece of the puzzle" in their squad.

The Eagles lost star forward Andre Silva to RB Leipzig earlier in the summer, while former forward Luka Jovic has also returned to parent club Real Madrid after a loan spell with Frankfurt last term.

Speaking about the club's latest signing, board member Markus Krosche said: "With Jens Petter Hauge, we're adding the next important piece of the puzzle to our squad.

"Our aim is to arrange the squad in such a way that we have even more versatility and are a bit less predictable.

"As well as having great pace, Jens Petter is capable of beating players in one-on-one situations and is a goal threat from every attacking position."
