Eintracht Frankfurt are very unlikely to be able to turn Luka Jovic's loan deal into a permanent one, according to their sporting director, Bruno Hübner.
"The chances of that are minimal," Hübner told Bild about the 23-year-old, who is on loan from Real Madrid until the end of the season.
"If he plays his way back to the forefront, other clubs will come knocking for him," he added.
Hübner also addressed speculation linking André Silva with a move away from the club, admitting that qualifying for the Champions League would increase Frankfurt's hopes of holding on to the Portuguese striker.
"Maybe he'll say: 'Okay, I'll prove that I can have another good season here and play with Eintracht in the Champions League," said Hübner.
Frankfurt currently sit fourth in the Bundesliga table, five points clear of fifth-placed Bayer Leverkusen.
