Dortmund set to sign Turkish talent Emre Mor

Borussia Dortmund are set to complete the signing of another rising star in 18-year-old Emre Mor. The Turkey international has put pen to paper on a five-year deal after agreeing to move from Danish top-tier side FC Nordsjaelland.

"Emre Mor is an incredibly gifted and versatile young attacking player with huge potential," said Dortmund's sporting director Michael Zorc.

'BVB are an exceptional club'

Born and raised in Denmark, but possessing a Turkish passport, Mor made 13 appearances in the Danish Superligaen last season, scoring twice and setting up a further two goals. After making a non-appearance off the bench against England, the youngster made his international debut in the build-up to UEFA EURO 2016 featuring against both Montenegro and Slovenia. Mor joins fellow BVB midfielder Nuri Sahin in Turkey's 23-man squad for the competition, but is eagerly anticipating taking another step forward in his career under Thomas Tuchel.

"BVB are an exceptional club in Europe with a unique fan base," said Mor. "I'm really looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and I can hardly wait for the start of the season and making my first appearance for Borussia."
