Dortmund have completed the signing of 16-year-old forward Jamie Bynoe-Gittens from Manchester City.
Bynoe-Gittens only turned 16 in August, and reportedly turned down an extended contract at the Etihad to move abroad to Germany, where he will join one of the most burgeoning academies in Europe.
He has featured twice for Man City U18s and is also capped at international level, having played for England's U15s and U16s.
Dortmund director Michael Zorc has praised the club's scouting department for picking out Bynoe-Gittens.
"Jamie Bynoe-Gittens is now with us and we're pleased that he has joined our youth department," Zorc said on Thursday.
"He will initially play with the U19's. Our scouting department did an excellent job!
"He's a highly talented offensive player, but he should develop patiently with us in the junior division. We don't want expectations to be too high right from the start."

He has gone on to become one of the elite wingers in Europe, and Bynoe-Gittens hopes to enjoy similar success, having walked on the same path.
"I'm going to try and make a name for myself," he said.
"When Sancho was at City, he was doing bits in the 18s, scoring every game, so in a way, I want to be like him.
"You’ve got to take stuff from other people to make the best version of yourself. You’ve now got to score and assist to be the best."
This summer Dortmund completed the signing of another English teenager, 17-year-old Jude Bellingham from Birmingham City.
