Borussia Dortmund have completed the signing of Belgium defensive midfielder Alex Witsel from Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian.

The German side released an official statement on their website claiming that they have met the Belgian's release clause as he was pictured during Dortmund's training today.

Witsel has agreed to a deal with Dortmund that will keep him at the club until 2022.

“After the World Cup, I was determined to transfer back to Europe”, said Witsel. “I am really happy and also proud that I will soon be able to play for BVB. I didn’t have to think about it for very long after our first discussion because Borussia Dortmund is one of the best clubs on the continent in my opinion. I honestly cannot wait to run out in front of 81,000 people.”

The 29-year old midfielder has been capped 96 times for the Belgium National team and he was part of the bronze-winning side during Russia 2018 World Cup
