Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund and England U21 international Jamie Bynoe-Gittens will continue their sporting journey together. Two days before BVB’s UEFA Champions League tie against AC Milan, the 19-year-old attacking player has signed a contract with the eight-time German champions until 30th June 2028.
“Jamie is a prospect for the future. A winger with incredible pace, who constantly looks to get into one-on-one situations, and displays his technical ability in doing so, can create goalscoring opportunities for his teammates or can look to shoot himself. We are convinced that his development is far from complete, and we are pleased that Jamie has decided at this early stage to commit his long-term future to BVB, despite great interest from several other big European clubs,” said Borussia Dortmund Sporting Director, Sebastian Kehl.
Bynoe-Gittens, who won the European U19 Championship title with England in the summer of 2022, joined BVB from Manchester City in 2020. He quickly made the leap from the youth team into the Bundesliga squad and has made 21 Bundesliga appearances (3 goals/1 assist) so far, as well as three appearances in the UEFA Champions League. After two operations on his shoulder, the winger has been back to full fitness since the beginning of the 2023/24 season.
Jamie Bynoe-Gittens said, “I am proud that Borussia Dortmund have given me the opportunity to sign such a long-term contract. Even during the difficult times for me in the past months due to injury, I have always felt the belief and trust of the club. I feel incredibly comfortable in this team, in this city, in this stadium. BVB were always my first point of contact because they have shown over many years that they give young players playing time at the highest level, if they perform convincingly. I wish to take the next step together with my club and want to help my team on the pitch with goals, assists and hard work.”
