Justin Butler is moving from FC Ingolstadt to the Rote Erde on a free transfer. The 22-year-old striker has signed a contract with Borussia Dortmund's U23s until 2025.

The German-American came through the ranks at FC Augsburg, FC Bayern Munich and FC Ingolstadt, and has made 55 appearances in the 3. Liga to date. The 1.88-metre-tall striker can be deployed in the wide positions as well as at centre-forward. "Justin is a fast player with an eye for goal who will certainly help us from next season onwards," explained Ingo Preuß, the sporting director of the U23s.
