It’s a done deal! Borussia Dortmund have signed Nico Schlotterbeck from Freiburg for what is believed to be around €25m, though the details of how the deal is structured remain a little unclear.
Great to see you, Nico!— Borussia Dortmund (@BlackYellow) May 2, 2022

Schlotterbeck has signed a deal that will see him remain at Freiburg until the end of the season before joining Borussia Dortmund for the 2022/23 season on a contract that runs until 2027.
I think this is a brilliant move. BVB will now head into next season with Niklas Sule and Schlotterbeck as their starting center backs, which is a significant upgrade on Manuel Akanji and Mats Hummels. On top of this, having Hummels as a backup is great as it will allow him to rest his ageing legs and continue to be a really solid contributor on this team.
First Niklas Sule, now Nico Schlotterbeck... How do you feel about this new look BVB defense?
