Borussia Dortmund have signed Germany U21 international Jeremy Toljan, who became an U21 European Champion in 2017 and claimed a silver medal at the 2016 Olympic Games. The full-back, who has just turned 23, penned a contract tying him to the club until 30 June 2022.
"Jeremy can slot in on both the left and right of defence," said Sporting Director Michael Zorc, adding: "He was one of the cornerstones of the side that secured the title for Germany at the U21 European Championship this summer." Toljan played the full 90 minutes of every fixture in the tournament, where he set up three goals, including the winner in the 1-0 final victory over Spain.
Since making his Bundesliga debut for TSG Hoffenheim on 5 October 2013, the Stuttgart native has made 56 Bundesliga appearances, scoring twice, and played on six occasions in the DFB Cup. Including all age categories from U17 level to senior level at the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil, where he finished as a runner-up, he has played 38 times for Germany. "He is a player with great potential," concluded Zorc.
