by on January 16, 2018

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed the arrival of defender Manuel Akanji from Basel on a four-and-a-half-year contract.

The Nigerian-born 22-year-old has attracted interest from a number of European clubs this month, having also been tipped to join Premier League sides Liverpool and Manchester United.

Dortmund were always seen as favourites to land Akanji, however, and the four-cap Switzerland international has now officially put pen to paper at the Westfalenstadion.

BVB sporting director Michael Zorc told the club’s official website: “Manuel’s performances put him on the radar of a number of top European clubs, and we’re delighted that he’s chosen to join us.”
