BVB’s sporting director Michael Zorc is delighted to have completed the capture of a highly-rated prospect and is tipping him to have a bright future in Germany.
Zorc told the club’s official website: “As of July, Dan-Axel Zagadou will be a full member of our professional team.
“We are fully convinced of the abilities of the player and look forward to helping him make his next development steps as a BVB professional.”
Zagadou added on his decision to move to Dortmund: "I have deliberately opted for BVB because this big club always succeeds in integrating young players and developing them at the highest level.
"I am really looking forward to meeting my new team-mates, seeing the imposing stadium, the famous fans and I really want to mature into an established professional footballer in Dortmund.”
Zagadou is the latest in a long line of top talents to have moved from France to Dortmund in recent times, with Ousmane Dembele and Raphael Guerreiro having thrived since treading a similar career path.
