Eintracht Frankfurt back-up keeper Diant Rama's transfer to Ajax Amsterdam is now confirmed. Multiple German footballing media sources reiterate that the 21-year-old has left the RheinMain metropolis for a record-breaking sum.

"Diant Ramaj is a great German goalkeeper talent who we are very reluctant to let go," Eintracht sporting director Markus Krösche is quoted as saying in a statement on the German club's website, "In the end, we complied with Diant's wish to move to a top European club and considered very attractive economic factors. Diant will go his way and we wish him only the best for his future."
The 21-year-old's new contract with his new Dutch side runs through 2028. If the rumors concerning the transfer fee are in fact true, €8 million is by far the greatest sum anyone has paid for a German goalkeeper with so little top-flight experience (two Bundesliga appearances) as Ramaj.
