Goalkeeper Mitch Langerak is leaving Borussia Dortmund to join fellow Bundesliga outfit VfB Stuttgart.

The Australian moved to Dortmund in the summer of 2010 and stood out thanks to his outstanding performances and exemplary character on and off the pitch. "We respect his wish for a new sporting challenge and would like to thank Mitch for his commitment and for the five successful years he spent at our club," explained BVB Sporting Director Michael Zorc.

The two clubs have agreed not to disclose the terms of the transfer.
