Erik Durm has left Borussia Dortmund and will join Huddersfield Town in the Premier League. The 26-year-old will sign a 1-year contract with Huddersfield, in addition the club secured the option to add one more year to he deal. Durm will rejoin former BVBII-coach David Wagner who took over Huddersfield in 2015 and led them to the Premier League.

Durm started out at Dortmund as a promising fullback who first broke into BVB’s squad before being called up to Germany’s 2014 World Cup squad that won the tournament. However a slew of injuries kept him from playing in recent years, the versatile fullback did not play a single game for the black and yellows last season. His last game for Dortmund was in the 2016/17 DFB Cup final against Eintracht Frankfurt which BVB won 2-1.

In 6 years he played 97 games for Dortmund (2 goals, 11 assists) and won the DFB Cup and 2 Supercups with the club. There is no official confirmation of the transfer fee thus far.
