Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund have confirmed the acquisition of Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Thorgan Hazard on a five-year contract.

In a short video, the club announced the signing on their official Twitter feed just a day after confirming the acquisition of Nico Schulz.

The 26-year-old Belgium international has long been linked with a move to Signal Iduna Park despite interest from other clubs that included Liverpool in the English Premier League.


Hazard himself had confirmed the move last month when he said: "Yes, that's the club. I have already spoken to that club. It's up to the clubs to come to an agreement. I now leave everything to my father [his agent] and the clubs.

"I've already said I would like to take a new step in my career. I want to discover something new. We now have to wait for an agreement between the clubs. That takes time. That's how it goes with negotiations."

Thorgan has scored 30 Bundesliga goals in 144 appearances since joining Gladbach on loan in 2014 before making the move permanent the following year.
