Borussia Dortmund and Central Coast Mariners have agreed the transfer of Mustafa Amini to the German club, but he will not play in the Bundesliga until at least 2012.

The Australian club have confirmed Amini, 18, who had a trial with the German side earlier this year, will be moving there eventually after impressing the champions.

For now, though, the player will stay in Australia on a loan deal until next year.

A statement on the Mariners' official website reads: "Central Coast Mariners can confirm talented midfielder Mustafa Amini has been transferred to German Bundesliga Champion BVB Borussia Dortmund.

"As part of the transfer arrangements, Amini will be instantly loaned back to the Mariners from tonight until 31 May 2012, allowing him to represent the Central Coast in the 2011/12 Hyundai A-League season as well as the group stage of the 2012 AFC Champions League."

Speaking of the move, Amini said: "I’d like to thank Peter Turnbull and Graham Arnold at the Mariners for working on this with Dortmund.

"I’m really excited to be joining Dortmund, they’re a big club with amazing supporters.”

Financial details were not disclosed.
