Borussia Dortmund have confirmed the signing of promising youngster Ousmane Dembele from Rennes for an undisclosed fee.
The 18-year-old forward pens a contract with BVB until June 2021 and had been receiving interest from several of Europe's big hitters, with the likes of Barcelona, Liverpool and Bayern Munich among those reported to have been tracking his progress.
However, Dembele has opted to continue his promising development at Signal Iduna Park.
"Ousmane can play in almost every attacking position," Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc told Dortmund's official website.
"I have nothing but respect when I see how many high-profile offers from all over Europe Ousmane has turned down and how he has stood firm about his commitment to BVB over such a long period of time."
