Borussia Dortmund sign Felix Nmecha from Wolfsburg


Borussia Dortmund have signed Germany international midfielder Felix Nmecha from Wolfsburg.

Nmecha, 22, became a regular in the Wolfsburg midfield last season, producing three goals and five assists in 30 Bundesliga appearances. He has put pen to paper at BVB on a contract through to 30 June 2028.

"Borussia Dortmund is a wonderful club that I have followed since my childhood," the Black-and-Yellows' new arrival said, in quotes appearing on the club's website. "I'm delighted that I am a part of it now and that I can help the team achieve its objectives in the Bundesliga, the DFB-Pokal and the Champions League. I hope the fans will give me the chance to get to know me." 

Nmecha turned out 50 times in all competitons during a two-year stint at Wolfsburg, playing alongside older brother Lukas. The former Manchester City youngster earned his first senior cap for Germany in a March 2023 friendly against Belgium, having previously represented his country of birth and England at youth level.

Speaking at the player's official unveiling, BVB sporting director Sebastian Kehl said, "Felix Nmecha is a fast, technically adept and physically strong player who will enhance our midfield both offensively and defensively with his profile. He had a sterling education at Manchester City and played his way into the limelight at Wolfsburg last season. We're delighted to have won another Germany international over and are convinced that Felix's development is a long way from over."
