Julian Ryerson has been officially unveiled as a Borussia Dortmund player.

The Norwegian full-back makes the switch from Union Berlin and has signed a deal until 2026.

"We have big sporting challenges ahead of us for which we need defensive stability. Julian Ryerson is an intelligent and, in a positive sense, very aggressive defending player. We really like his profile, his character and his greed to want to leave the pitch as a winner under all circumstances," said BVB sporting director Sebastian Kehl.

"On top of that, he can be used on both the right and left in the back four as well as in the back three, which gives him and us additional flexibility. We are looking forward to having Julian here and are glad that we were able to complete this transfer at such short notice."

Ryerson, who made 79 Bundesliga appearances for Union Berlin, commented:

"It is not easy for me to leave Union Berlin, because I owe a lot to this special club, my teammates, the staff and the fans. I will always have fond memories of my time at the Alte Försterei.

"Now I'm looking forward to a new chapter at Borussia Dortmund and want to help BVB achieve their goals in the Bundesliga, Champions League and DFB Cup. As an opponent, I've already been able to experience the atmosphere at Signal Iduna Park - I was impressed, and I'm already excited to see how it will feel to have the famous Yellow Wall at my back."
