A few days before the start of the season in the 3. Liga, the Borussia Dortmund U23s have sent out midfielder Aday Ercan, 20, on loan to Regionalliga side SV Rödinghausen for the coming season. Before that, he extended his contract with BVB by one year until the summer of 2023.

Ercan came to Dortmund from SC Wiedenbrück in July 2020. In his first season for BVB, the central midfielder played 20 games, scoring one goal and providing two assists. "We hope that Aday gets a lot of playing time in Rödinghausen. That is very important for his further development," said U23s manager Ingo Preuß.
