Tranquillo Barnetta eager to begin Eintracht Frankfurt career

Tranquillo Barnetta reveals his excitement at the prospect of joining up with his new Eintracht Frankfurt teammates.

Tranquillo Barnetta has revealed that he is eager to begin his season-long loan spell with Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Swiss midfielder, who was reportedly a target for Crystal Palace, admits that moving to a new city 'excites' him after joining from Schalke 04.

"I am really excited that the transfer went through in the end as I am keen to learn more about my teammates, as well as the city of Frankfurt as soon as possible," the 28-year-old told the club's official website.

"First, I will be away on international duty with Switzerland, but I will be back in 10 days' time."

Barnetta has won 68 caps for Switzerland.
