Borussia Dortmund sign André Schürrle from VfL Wolfsburg

Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund have announced the signing of a second Germany international within 24 hours as the Bundesliga side sealed a deal with André Schürrle on Friday. The 25 year old has signed a contrast lasting until June 30, 2021 and he will commence training in Dortmund at the beginning of August.

“André Schürrle is a Germany international with outstanding attacking potential who is also a very good passer of the ball and consistently contributes neatly to his team’s defensive play. Though still just 25 years old, he has already amassed considerable international experience. His quality will be of great value for our team,” said Borussia Dortmund’s Sporting Director Michael Zorc in an official statement on the club website. “Our offensive lineup is now complete.”

“Borussia Dortmund is one of Europe’s top clubs and they have a strong and extremely exciting squad. I know from my own experience how much strength BVB can harness through its interaction with its fans and I am now very much looking forward to experiencing that as part of the Black and Yellows for the first time rather than as a marvelling opponent. In the coming years I want to achieve success with Borussia Dortmund and can hardly wait to start training and to convince everyone that the club has made the right choice in signing me,” Schürrle stated.

Schürrle has scored 48 goals and set up a further 29 in 174 Bundesliga matches. He has earned 55 caps for the German national team so far and he has scored 20 goals.
