Both sides have agreed to a transfer that would send the Danish midfielder to Spain.

As the transfer window winds down, there is going to be a flurry of last-minute transfers in the Bundesliga and around Europe. According to Kicker, Borussia Dortmund’s bone-crunching Danish midfielder - Thomas Delaney - is set for a move to Sevilla FC, which should be finalized any day now. The move is virtually a done deal, as Delaney has already arrived in Spain:

The transfer fee is... not very large. According to Nicolo Schira, the fee is around €5.5 million, a slight increase from Sevilla’s first offer, which was around €4 million. Borussia Dortmund reportedly wanted as much as €10 million, but with no other offers incoming and Delaney’s heart set on Sevilla, BVB appear to have accepted the best offer they had available.

With Mahmoud Dahoud, Jude Bellingham, Axel Witsel, and Emre Can in the squad, Delaney was never going to play a major role in BVB’s squad plans. While his physical presence and defensive contributions were valuable, his passing and offensive output was too low to justify his wage bill. He should hopefully play a more active role at Sevilla, who look poised to compete for the La Liga title this season.

Delaney has always been a bit of a meme here at Fear the Wall, but I do genuinely like him and appreciate his services here in Dortmund. We wish him the best of luck at his new club.
