Eintracht Frankfurt announced on Tuesday that it has agreed to a contract extension with Timmy Chandler through the 2019-20 season.

Chandler, 26, spent most of his youth in the Frankurt development system. After making his pro debut with the club’s reserve team, he joined FC Nurnberg where he made his name as professional and earned a USMNT call-up in 2011.

After four seasons there, he returned to his childhood club in 2014. Today he commits his long term future to Eintracht Frankfurt for at least three more seasons.

Chandler has played in 16 matches in all competitions this season, recording two assists in the process. Frankfurt are currently sitting in the 6th spot in the Bundesliga table, the final Europa League spot.

On the international stage, Chandler returned to the good graces of Jurgen Klinsmann in November after a year-long absence and overtook DeAndre Yedlin for the starting right back job for the beginning of the CONCACAF Hexagonal. It remains to be seen what the pecking order could look like at the position with Bruce Arena taking charge.
