By Peter Vice

German footballing magazine Kicker reports that Thomas Delaney's medical in Sevilla is scheduled for today. 

Once the outgoing transfer is finalized, die Schwarzgelben may secure the financial leeway to conclude some purchases.

The reported sale of Danish midfielder Thomas Delaney to La Liga side is nearly complete. Information on a transfer fee is not available at this time, but at last check the two sides did not appear to have a transaction in line with the 29-year-old's market value lined up.


Denmark's B.T. recently reported on a fee of €4 million, even though transfermarkt still lists the veteran midfielder's estimated worth at closer to €15 million.

Dortmund boss Hans-Joachim Watzke recently emphasized that the BVB would need to generate some cash via departures before incoming transfers could be considered. This is almost certainly the case with regard to the club's interest in German national team defender Marcel Halstenberg, who will not come cheap from RB Leipzig.

"Without something happening on the departure side, nothing will happen on the arrival side," Watzke stressed in a presser some weeks ago.

Other BVB candidates for sale include former first team keeper Roman Bürki, defender Nico Schulz, winger Marius Wolf, and attacker Julian Brandt.
