The USA international has been making waves in Westphalia – and beyond – since breaking into the BVB first team in early 2016, and Dortmund’s fans can now look forward to even more from the talented forward after he committed his long-term future to the Bundesliga club.

“I still have a lot to learn, but here in Dortmund I have the best surroundings for that,” said Pulisic, 18, on Die Schwarzgelben's website. “I also have the opportunity here to play in front of 80,000 fans. We have the best fans in the world – it doesn’t get any better than this!”

Watch: Pulisic commits future to BVB:

Pulisic burst onto the scene little over a year ago, becoming the youngest player in Bundesliga history to reach two goals while also becoming the youngest USMNT debutant and goalscorer. He has since represented his country 11 times and scored three goals, featuring 22 times in the Bundesliga with four goals to his name.

Pulisic has already scored four Bundesliga goals in a Dortmund shirt, and more are sure to come between now and 2020.

“We’re delighted that, after Julian Weigl, we’ve been able to tie down another extraordinarily talented player on a long-term contract,” said Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc. “Christian already enjoys a great reputation within the team and he can become a key cornerstone of our team, just like Weigl.”
