Dortmund agree Schulz deal

Borussia Dortmund have agreed a deal in principle with Hoffenheim’s Nico Schulz, according to Sport Bild.

The German outlet claim that neither Marcel Schmelzer, who is 31 and under contract for two more years, nor Jeremy Toljan (24, three more years, on loan at Celtic at the moment) are in the plans of head coach Lucien Favre for next season. Therefore, the club have been looking for a player to step into the left-back role, and they believe they found a good option in Schulz.

The report also says that, according to Sport Bild’s sources, the Germany international has a buyout clause set between €25 million and €30 million, which Dortmund will likely have to activate in order to make Hoffenheim do a deal.

Schulz started out at Hertha Berlin in 2010 where he spent five years before moving to Borussia Monchengladbach. He arrived at Hoffenheim in 2017, and has so far made a total of 67 games in all competitions for them, scoring four goals.
