Transfer: Nigerian striker joins Dortmund
Nigerian-born Germany junior international, Karim Adeyemi, has joined Borussia Dortmund.
Dortmund announced the arrival of Adeyemi on the same day (Tuesday) their striker Erling Haaland joined Manchester City.
Recall that Man City confirmed the signing of Haaland from Dortmund on Tuesday for £51million on a bumper five-year £385,000-a-week deal.
And the Bundesliga side have already sorted out Haaland’s replacement, with Red Bull Salzburg striker Adeyemi joining on a five-year deal.
In a tweet announcing Adeyemi’s signing, Dortmund posted: “He’s Karim Adeyemi – He’s Fast – He’s Home,’ with a signing emoji and a clip cutting together several films with characters saying ‘he’s fast’.
Adeyemi said on the move: “As a little boy, I was fascinated by black and yellow fast-paced football. That is why it quickly became clear to me that I would like to switch to BVB when I found out about Dortmund’s interest.
“I deliberately signed for the long term because I am convinced that we will be an exciting team that, with the support of the fantastic Dortmund fans, will be able to play for and win titles in the medium term.”
