Clark, a 26-year-old defensive midfielder, joins the Bundesliga outfit from Houston Dynamo and the club have an option to make the deal permanent in the summer.

Clark will provide midfield cover following Markus Steinhoefer's move to Kaiserslautern and the ongoing injury absence of Bosnian Zlatan Bajramovic.

Eintracht boss Michael Skibbe said on the club's official website: "If Ricardo can adapt to the Bundesliga, he will be a useful player to us. He is a good runner, powerful and is good on the ball."
