The Real Madrid loanee has enjoyed a promising start to life in the German top-flight with two assists and a goal in his first three outings

Borussia Dortmund defender Achraf Hakimi has been named the German Bundesliga rookie of the month for September.

Hakimi who is on a two-year loan at the Signal-Iduna Park has stamped his presence as a regular in Lucien Favre's squad since he made his league bow on September 26.

The 19-year-old right-back had a goalscoring debut in the BVB’s 7-0 trouncing of Nurnberg and followed it up with an assist each in their wins over Bayer Leverkusen and Augsburg.

The Morocco international saw off competition from Borussia's Monchengladbach's Florian Neuhaus and Hertha Berlin winger Javairo Dilrosun to clinch the accolade.

Winning the rookie prize automatically puts the pacy youngster in contention to win the Bundesliga Rookie of the Season award that was claimed by his compatriot Amine Harit - who plays for Schalke 04 - at the end of last season.
