Borussia Dortmund has signed 23-year-old Germany international Julian Brandt from Bayer Leverkusen. The highly rated youngster has signed a contract until June 30, 2024.

“Although Julian Brandt has already been playing in the Bundesliga for some time and has lots of experience at both national and international level, at 23 years of age he’s still a young player with lots of potential for development. He can be deployed in several attacking positions and will enhance our game with his creativity,” said Borussia Dortmund’s Sporting Director Michael Zorc.

“I’m a person for whom gut instinct and having a good feeling is important when it comes to decisions,” said Julian Brandt. “When it comes to Borussia Dortmund, I have a very good feeling. I would like to continue my personal development, that’s one of the main reasons for my transfer. BVB came extremely close to winning the title last season. So there’s room for improvement. I have high hopes with the lads, I’m very motivated and optimistic – not just when it comes to my development as an individual, but the development of the entire team too.”

The transfer is still subject to the final details being clarified between the two clubs.

Brandt’s transfer has been announced by Borussia Dortmund just hours after the club confirmed a deal with Belgium international Thorgan Hazard.
