Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Bürki is reportedly close to joining French Ligue 1 side FC Lorient on loan.


According to The Athletic, the transfer is nearing completion, with Bürki expected to head out on loan before the window slams shut later today.

Swiss newspaper Blick, meanwhile, reports that the move is unlikely, but not ruled out.

A few days ago, Bürki seems to be on his way to Galatasaray, but the Turkish Süper Lig club opted to sign Inaki Pena from Barcelona instead.

Bürki is currently the third-choice goalkeeper at Dortmund, having fallen behind Marwin Hitz and first-choice goalkeeper Gregor Kobel in the pecking order.
