Borussia Dortmund have agreed a €64 million deal with Chelsea for Christian Pulisic who will join 'The Blues' in the summer.
Chelsea have signed the 20-year-old winger with immediate effect, but he will stay on loan at Dortmund until the end of the season.
"It has always been Christian's dream to play in the Premier League. That certainly has something to do with his American background, and as a result, we were unable to extend his contract," Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc told BVB.de and added:
"Therefore, we've decided to accept a bid from Chelsea that we consider extremely lucrative, given the short length of his remaining contract."
Pulisic told Chelsea's official website:
"In summer I move on to Chelsea and to a new competition, the English Premier League. It’s a privilege to have signed for such a legendary club and I look forward to working hard towards being a contributor to their team of world class players."
The U.S. international's contract with Dortmund was set to expire in the summer of 2020.
Pulisic has made 115 appearances for Dortmund with 15 goals and 24 assists to his name.
