New signing Marwin Hitz's second trip with Borussia Dortmund takes him to the USA. The BVB contingent boarded their transatlantic flight in Düsseldorf on Wednesday lunchtime. Chicago will be the first stop.

"I'm really looking forward to it and I'm happy to be experiencing new things," the new signing told BVBtotal! prior to departure. "It's all superbly organised. I'm looking forward to getting to know the team better – and to the three friendlies."

The former Augsburg man has only been in Dortmund for 10 days. He's been "very surprised by the friendliness of the local people. So far it's been an exciting and intense week". (br)
