Bas Dost has exchanged Sporting CP for Eintracht Frankfurt on Monday. The striker signs for three years with the club from the Bundesliga, which is said to pay around 10 million euros.
The transition of the 30-year-old Dost seemed to be coming earlier this month, but was delayed after a conflict between Sporting and the attacker's management.
After Frankfurt had reported an agreement, Sporting announced that the transfer was uncertain due to additional financial requirements from Dost. The angry Dost business manager then invalidated that story.
So now the transition is complete. Dost started his career at FC Emmen and then played for Heracles Almelo, sc Heerenveen and VfL Wolfsburg, before arriving in Portugal in the summer of 2016.
The eighteen-time Oranje-international, which is no longer available for the Dutch national team since April last year, made a big impression in Sporting's shirt with 93 goals in 127 games.
More than a year ago, the Dost period at Sporting seemed to come to an end, when he was the main victim of a storm of the club's hooligans. Surprisingly, he extended his contract.
