BVB agree deal for Schulz

17th April 2019, 10:06 by Michael Holland

Borussia Dortmund have agreed a deal to sign defender Nico Schulz from Hoffenheim in the summer, reports have claimed.

Dortmund have put signing a new left-back near the top of their priority list ahead of the summer and are reported to have identified Schulz as their top target.

Some reports have gone as far as saying that BVB officials have already agreed personal terms with the player, who will make the switch as soon as the season is over.

Schulz is under contract until 2021 but there is a release clause to the tune of 25-30million euros in the deal and Dortmund appear more than happy to meet it.

Achraf Hakimi and Abdou Diallo have both been deployed at left-back this season, but neither have managed to make the position their own, hence coach Lucien Favre's eagerness to draft in a new signing.

Schulz is the man he wants, and if reports are to be believed, the deal has already been hammered out.
