FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Freiburg midfielder Johannes Flum is following teammate Jan Rosenthal to Bundesliga rival Eintracht Frankfurt next season.

Frankfurt says on its website that the 25-year-old Flum signed a three-year deal on Friday to join Freiburg.

Flum made his Bundesliga debut in 2010 and has scored seven goals in 90 games.

Frankfurt sports director Bruno Huebner says "Flum was one of our favorite players because he fits exactly with our philosophy and still has development potential."

Freiburg is sixth in the Bundesliga but struggling to hold onto its best players. Aside from Rosenthal and Flum, Max Kruse is joining Borussia Moenchengladbach, Daniel Caligiuri is switching to Wolfsburg, and sports director Dirk Dufner has gone to Hannover.
