Borussia Dortmund have officially confirmed the signing of Sebastien Haller from Ajax.


The 28-year-old French forward has put his signature on a four-year contract with 'Die Schwarzgelben'.

"We’re very pleased to have been able to sign Sébastien Haller – a seasoned centre-forward who has recently caused a sensation in the Champions League, but who also knows the Bundesliga in particular and has already demonstrated his class and high-quality finishing there," commented Borussia Dortmund director Sebastian Kehl.

"The overall package is very promising. Sébastien possesses a strong physical presence and he is physically very resilient. With his experience, he can also offer support and stability to our young attacking players. During the talks with us, he made it clear that he has big ambitions with BVB."

Haller stated:

"The stadium is great, but the greatest stadium is nothing without its fans. As part of the BVB family, I can't wait to feel the support of more than 80,000 spectators in the future. We’ll hopefully achieve great things together in the next few years and be able to celebrate together too."

Dortmund have paid a reported €35 million including add-ons to bring the former Eintracht Frankfurt striker back to Germany.

Haller scored a total of 47 goals in 65 games for Ajax.
