thumbnail Hello,

The Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper is expected to confirm he will join Barcelona in the summer after their transfer ban was suspended by Fifa

Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen is ready to end speculation over his future by announcing his new club next weekend.

The 22-year-old was widely rumoured to be joining Barcelona but the club's transfer ban - imposed by Fifa for their dealings in international youth transfers – appeared to scupper any move.

Gladbach have previously announced that Ter Stegen will definitely leave and after Fifa suspended Barca's ban on transfers while the club's appeal against the sanction is still unresolved, the move appears to be back on, pending final confirmation.

"I control the moment when I announce my new club," Ter Stegen told Kicker .

"I would like to do so at the end of the season."

The Germany international is therefore expected to reveal his future plans after Gladbach's last Bundesliga match against Wolfsburg just seven days from now, with his current club still firmly in the race for European qualification.
