Mahmoud Dahoud

Eight-time German champions Borussia Dortmund have completed the signing of Mahmoud ‘Mo’ Dahoud from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Mönchengladbach. The German U21 international will join the club at the start of the 2017/18 season.

The 21-year-old product of Mönchengladbach’s youth academy was highly-coveted by several top clubs in Europe. Dahoud has made 52 Bundesliga appearances (6 goals) already in his career and played in several UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League matches. His contract at BVB will run until 30 June 2022.

“Mo Dahoud is an incredibly exciting player in central midfield and we have been watching him closely for several years. He has already proved that he can play at the highest level,” said Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc.

Both clubs agreed not to disclose details of the transfer fee.
