Eintracht Frankfurt are close to completing the signing of Niels Nkounkou from Saint-Etienne, according to reports.

Sport1 claims that the Frenchman is currently in Frankfurt after the two clubs agreed on a fee of just under 8 million.

The 22-year-old left-back has scored six goals and provided eight assists in 21 appearances for Saint-Etienne.

He left Olympique Marseille to join Everton as a youngster and went on to make seven appearances for the Toffees.

During his time there, he had loan spells with Standard Liege, Cardiff and Saint-Etienne, who made his loan permanent at the end of last season.
