Chandler returns home to Eintracht Frankfurt
[AMERICANS ABROAD] Both German-American outside backs on the U.S. World Cup team will be playing for new Bundesliga clubs next season. After Fabian Johnson, who signed with Borussia Moenchengladbach from Hoffenheim on a free transfer, Timmy Chandler returned to
Eintracht Frankfurt after Nuremberg was relegated.
Eintracht signed the 24-year-old Chandler to a three-year contract through June 2017.
Chandler was born in Frankfurt and
joined Frankfurt's youth program when he was 11. After two seasons with its reserve team, Eintracht transferred him to Nuremberg before the 2010-11 season, and he made his Bundesliga debut with it
after spending the first half of the season with its reserve team.
Eintracht finished tied for 13th in the 18-team Bundesliga in 2013-14. Nuremberg was relegated to the second division
after finishing 17th.
