Frankfurt sport director Bruno Hubner has now confirmed Felix Wiedwald could sign for the club this summer.

The Leeds United goalkeeper spent some time with Frankfurt before moving to Werder Bremen in 2015, and now the 28 year old could be heading back to his former club.

Via the club’s official Twitter account, Hubner explained: “It is correct that we are dealing with a return for Felix Wiedwald, but we cannot announce anything as fixed yet and have to be patient.”

Bild had initially pushed the potential transfer on Sunday, saying Frankfurt are looking for a second choice to support Frederik Rönnow, and Wiedwald has been identified after doing a similar job at the club previously.

The German newspaper reported Wiedwald wants to leave Leeds United, and it’s believed ‘in the next few days’ an agreement can be found to allow the goalkeeper to return to the Bundesliga.

Wiedwald arrived at Elland Road with great hopes attached but a patch of poor form saw him out of the team and he never really recovered from the knock to his confidence.
