Report: Frankfurt's Akman to be loaned out to Galatasaray

As confirmed by club sporting director Markus Krösche, Eintracht Frankfurt attacking prospect Ali Akman will be loaned out again this season.
Despite an impressive developmental year out on loan at NEC Nijmegen, it looks as if this is not the year that 20-year-old highly touted Turkish talent Ali Akman will make his debut in the Bundesliga. Eintracht Frankfurt simply has no room for the youngster on the current roster; not even in Champions' League season during which depth shall be required.

"Ali is in the process of talking to a club, it's about a loan again," SGE sporting director Markus Krösche noted a couple of weeks ago", "That's why we released him [from training]."

As was the case last year, information on the loan club did not surface. It has now been revealed by the local "Wiesbadener Kurier" newspaper that Akman is set to join cousins Hamza Akman and Efe Akman over at Galatasaray. Krösche effectively confirmed the destination when speaking to the paper and noted he and his team were "on it" insofar as the transfer is concerned.

Akman scored six goals last year in the Erdevisie.
