Borussia Dortmund have reached an agreement with Olympique Marseille to loan central defender Leonardo Balerdi to the French top-flight outfit for the 2020/2021 season.

The 21-year-old Argentine initially joined BVB from Boca Juniors in 2019 and has since made eight competitive appearances for the Black & Yellows.

"Leonardo Balerdi approached us with a transfer request. He is hoping to get more playing time in Marseille. We would like to thank him for his commitment and wish him every success for the future," declared Borussia Dortmund's sporting director Michael Zorc.
