OFFICIAL: Eintracht Frankfurt Pounce For Petkovic

Eintracht Frankfurt have rewarded Serbian defender Nikola Petkovic with a three-and-a-half year contract following a successful trial period with the club...
The 22-year-old had only been on trial with the Bundesliga club since Tuesday but it didn't take Friedhelm Funkel (pictured) long to decide that the youth international is up to snuff.

No terms of the deal were disclosed for Petkovic, who follows behind Leonard Kweuke as Eintracht's second signing since the start of the winter break.

Both are expected to feature during the friendly against second division SpVgg Greuther Fürth this Saturday, in the hopes of earning a place for the Frankfurter's first match of 2009 away to Hertha Berlin at the end of this month.
