CareerEdit

Franke is a product of Dynamo Dresden's youth setup, and was promoted to the first team in 2010. He made his debut in March 2011, when he replaced Sascha Pfeffer in a 3. Liga match against SV Wehen Wiesbaden. In Summer 2013 he was signed for Hallescher FC by former Dynamo Dresden coach Sven Köhler.[2]

In July 2017, he signed for Norwich City on a three-year contract, for an undisclosed fee.[3][4] He made his debut for them in the opening game of the 2017/18 season, a 1–1 draw with Fulham, playing at centre half along with fellow debutant Christoph Zimmermann.[5] He played in the first seven games of the season (five in the Championship and two in the Carabao Cup) but was dropped after a 4–0 defeat at Millwall,[6] with Timm Klose having returned from injury and the club signing Grant Hanley. Although he came on as a late substitute for Klose in a 3–1 win over Brentford in the Carabao Cup in September,[7] it was announced in December that he would be returning to Dynamo Dresden on loan in the January transfer window for the remainder of the season.[8]

On 27 June 2018, Franke joined SV Darmstadt 98 on a season-long loan.[9]
