Dembele decided to ink a five-year contract with Dortmund, tying the player to the German club until 2021.

The signing comes just days after Dortmund lost center-back Mats Hummels to rivals Bayern Munich.

After being called into the Rennes first team in November, Dembele scored 12 goals in 25 appearances. Dembele became the youngest player to score 10 goals in Ligue 1 history, reaching the mark faster than both Thierry Henry and Anthony Martial.
