DFB Cup holders Borussia Dortmund have signed 17-year-old English youngster Jadon Sancho, who has been coveted by a number of top European clubs, on the final day of the transfer window.
BVB and Sancho's former club, Manchester City, agreed on the terms of the transfer today. Sancho, who has signed a long-term contract with the eight-time German champions, will immediately link up with the first-team squad. The attacking player is currently one of the key performers in England's strong U18 team and was a runner-up in the U17 European Championship.
"We're delighted that Jadon Sancho, who is at present one of the hottest prospects in European football, wants to and will play for Borussia Dortmund. We're convinced that we'll be able to help this very young player to further develop his game and to make him into a valuable addition to our team in the medium-term," said Sporting Director Michael Zorc.
Jadon Sancho will wear the shirt number 7 at BVB.
