Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund have signed Dutch international Donyell Malen from PSV Eindhoven. The 22-year-old completed the mandatory medical at the BVB training camp in Bad Ragaz (Switzerland) yesterday and subsequently signed a contract with the German cup winners until 30 June 2026.
"Borussia Dortmund are a top European club that are always fighting at the top of the Bundesliga and have high expectations in the Champions League. I can't wait to be on the pitch with my new teammates to be able to compete with the best. And of course, I'm looking forward to the fans and the stadium that everyone in Europe raves about," said Donyell Malen.
Last season, the attacker was involved in 37 goals in 45 matches for his club (27 goals, 10 assists), and the Dutchman, who was part of the Netherlands squad for Euro 2020, scored twice in 13 games for the Dutch national team in the 2020/21 season.
"Donyell is a player with great offensive potential, who poses a real danger in front of goal. He will bring us his creativity and plays at a high tempo", said BVB sporting director, Michael Zorc. Sebastian Kehl, head of the licensed player division, added: "Donyell impressed us with his achievements at PSV. He can be used in different systems, be it up front as a lone striker, as one of two strikers or on the wings. The BVB fans can look forward to watching Donyell."
