Borussia Dortmund have announced the signing of Thomas Meunier on a four-year deal.
The Belgian’s deal at Paris Saint-Germain expires on 30 June, and despite some Premier League interest it has now been confirmed that BVB have won the race to sign him.
The 28-year-old started his career at Luxembourg based side Virton, before moving to Club Brugge and then PSG in 2016. While at the French side he was won a host of honours, including four Ligue 1 titles.
The news of his signing was greeted enthusiastically by Dortmund’s sporting director, Michael Zorc.
“Thomas Meunier is a player who has demonstrated his quality at the highest level in the Champions League and in the national team over a long period of time and will really benefit us with his experience,” Zorc said (via the club’s website).
Meunier himself expressed similar delight at the move.
“Borussia Dortmund plays exactly the football that I want to play: exciting, authentic and natural,” he revealed.
“BVB is known for their enthusiastic fans and the atmosphere during the game with Paris at SIGNAL IDUNA PARK really influenced my decision. I am ambitious and, like with Bruges and Paris, I would like to win titles with Dortmund.”
