Sebastian Jung’s anticipated transfer to Roma has fallen through after his Eintracht Frankfurt took him off the market.
Reports this morning had the two clubs as in agreement over a proposed transfer for the 22-year-old full-back, with Jung set for an initial 12-month loan, with an agreed fee in place to then make that permanent in 2013.
However, the player’s agent has confirmed that the move has been broken off, because of a technical decision by his employers.
“I want to communicate that last night the player was taken off the market, so the deal is frozen,” Mino Grillo told Radio 101.5 this afternoon.
“At the moment he is completely removed from the market, but then you never know with the market because it closes on August 31 and anything can happen.
“For the German club he is a strong player that has many attributes. This decision was imposed by the Coach.
“It’s the club’s choice. It’s not a discussion about economics, but rather about technical decisions at this time, where so many things can change.
“The negotiations with Roma were well underway.”
