Süle explains decision to sign for Dortmund

In an interview with Bild, Niklas Süle has explained the reasons for his move to Borussia Dortmund.
Earlier today, it was confirmed that Niklas Süle will be joining Borussia Dortmund from Bayern München as a free agent at the end of the season.

In an interview with Bild, the 26-year-old has explained his decision.

"From the first time we made contact, I immediately sensed that those responsible at the club were very keen to work with me," said Süle.

"[Club CEO] Hans Joachim Watzke, [sporting director] Michael Zorc, [head of first team football] Sebastian Kehl and [head coach] Marco Rose impressively conveyed to me the role I could play at BVB, and I had the feeling that I was wanted as a person and as a footballer.

"I was impressed by the way they tried to get me, so I quickly knew where I was going to play in the future."

Süle's agent, Volker Struth, has revealed that the 26-year-old had more financially lucrative offers on the table.

The German international was also linked with Barcelona and Chelsea among others.
