Eintracht Frankfurt is 24-year-old defender Michael Hector's 13th loan move of his career

On-loan Chelsea defender Michael Hector was sent off for the second consecutive game as his Eintracht Frankfurt side beat Schalke in the Bundesliga.

Hector, who is on a season-long deal, was dismissed for bringing down striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, who was through on goal.

The Jamaica international was also shown a red card on his debut in the German Cup against Magdeburg.
