They didn’t waste much time finding a replacement. On Tuesday, Adeyemi passed his medical exam and signed a five-year contract.
“When I was young, the Black & Yellows’ fast-paced football really interested me, “Adeyemi told him. “So, when I heard that Dortmund wanted to sign me, I knew I wanted to join BVB.
“I chose to sign a long-term contract because I’m sure that we’ll be able to form an exciting team that, with the help of Dortmund’s amazing fans, will be able to compete for and win titles in the years to come.
Before the summer, Dortmund has been very busy. Adeyemi is the third player to agree to move to Signal Iduna Park after Niklas Süle and Nico Schlotterbeck.
The team’s new sports director, Sebastian Kehl, also said: “After Niklas Süle and Nico Schlotterbeck left, we are getting Karim Adeyemi for next season. He is another very exciting player. He has a lot of love for BVB. As a kid, he cheered for the Black and Yellows, and he chose to sign with Borussia Dortmund even though he had offers from some of Europe’s best leagues.
“His speed and ability to score goals are impressive, and even though Karim is only 20, he is already at a very advanced stage in his development as a footballer and athlete. However, we still see a lot of room for growth in him,”
