Borussia Dortmund have officially announced the signing of Anthony Modeste from FC Köln.


The 34-year-old striker has signed a one-year deal with 'Die Schwarzgelben'.

"After our analysis of last season, we made a conscious decision to recruit a classic centre-forward who could bolster our offensive game by offering physicality, a strong aerial presence and a goal threat," said BVB sporting director Sebastian Kehl.

With new signing from Ajax Sebastien Haller ruled out for months due to testicular cancer, Modeste will bolster BVB's options in attack.

"In light of Sébastien Haller's illness, we are glad that, in Anthony Modeste, we have been able to add another striker with this profile to our squad for the current season. He is a seasoned pro who knows the Bundesliga very well, who scored 20 goals last season and who, with his skillset, can fill the exact role that our coach Edin Terzic envisages for the BVB style of football."
