DONE DEAL: Real Madrid sign Eintracht Frankfurt prospect Enrique Herrero

Real Madrid have snapped up 16-year-old Enrique Herrero from Eintracht Frankfurt.

The German club had pipped Madrid to sign Herrera last summer but just a few months on, the Spanish player was keen to return home.

He signed his new professional contract in Valdebebas yesterday but is not eligible to play for Madrid's Under-19s until the club is given the green light from FIFA.

Murcia-born Herrero is a promising striker who demonstrated his abilities during his time with Villarreal. He put himself on the market as a free agent last summer and drew interest from Real Madrid and Barça.

But in the end it was Eintracht Frankfurt who enticed him with an attractive proposal - including the promise of first team action in the Bundesliga.

However, eight months on, the youngster was keen to return to Spain and Madrid gave him the opportunity to do so.
