There's certainly been quite a few roster moves this summer made by Borussia Dortmund. With many new faces already entering the fray, Dortmund fans will also be seeing quite a few new numbers on the pitch come next season. Here's what you need to know.
Nuri Sahin #8 - The Turkish midfielder will assume the jersey number previously worn by Ilkay Gundogan. Sahin switched from his #18 shirt last season. The #18 jersey currently remains vacant.
NEW PLAYER NUMBERS:
Marc Bartra #5 - The former FC Barcelona man wore #15 for his club and #4 for his country. It looks like Bartra chose to go with #5 this season. Perhaps he's showing reverence to Hummels by leaving #15 vacant. He will be the first #5 since Sebastian Kehl donned the jersey.
Ousmane Dembele #7 - After wearing #23 at Stade Rennais, Dembele opted for a swith to the #7 jersey this season. He will be the first #7 since Jonas Hofmann wore it before his January transfer.
Emre Mor #9 - Not even a day in town and he already has his number. The young Turk previously wore the #29 for both club and country. The last #9 was Adnan Januzaj, who's disappointing loan to Dortmund ended in January.
Sebastian Rode #18 - The ex-Bayern midfielder will don the same number worn by Sahin last season after wearing #20 in Munich.
Mikel Merino #24 - The Spaniard wore #32 for Osasuna last season and has worn #6 for Spain's U19 team. He will be wearing Marian Sarr's old jersey number in Dortmund.
