Bayern to sign midfielder Rode from Frankfurt

Berlin, Jan 10 (IANS) German Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich are set to sign midfielder Sebastian Rode from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer.

Rode’s existing contract expires in the summer and the 23-year-old defensive midfielder could be on his way to joining the reigning champions, reports Xinhua.
Eintracht chairman Heribert Bruchhagen Thursday admitted the move from the club’s winter training camp in Abu Dhabi.
Rode is the second player to commit to joining Bayern in the summer, after Bayern confirmed the signing of Borussia Dortmund and Poland striker Robert Lewandowski on a pre-contract agreement last weekend.
