Eight-time German champions Borussia Dortmund have signed midfielder Thorgan Hazard from fellow Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach ahead of the 2019/20 season.

The 26-year-old has signed a contract with BVB until 30 June 2024.

"We're delighted that Thorgan has decided with total conviction to join Borussia Dortmund. He's an experienced Bundesliga professional and a Belgian international who will help us with his tempo and his finishing quality. He has consistently demonstrated his class over the course of the past few years," said BVB sporting director Michael Zorc.

"I'm proud to be able to play for Borussia Dortmund!"

Hazard made 35 appearances for Mönchengladbach last season, scoring 13 goals and notching 12 assists. He is one of the most hard-running players in the Bundesliga, having covered a remarkable 20.29 kilometres in sprints in 2018/19.

Thorgan Hazard said: "I'm thankful for the five great years and very fond memories I had at Borussia Mönchengladbach. Now was exactly the right time to take the next step in my career. I'm proud to be able to play for Borussia Dortmund. They're a top club with incredible fans."

All parties involved have agreed not to disclose the terms of the transfer.
