Ben Gibson to Burnley

One of the quieter sides in the transfer window so far, Burnley might be about to open the chequebook and break that trend. According to Sky Sports,...

Marco Reus happy as the constant and the mentor at Borussia Dortmund

Mario Gotze discusses Borussia Dortmund's win over Manchester City in the ICC and describes how the German side is feeling early in preseason.
ESPN FC's Stewart Robson feels Christian Pulisic must improve his end product at Borussia Dortmund this season.
Mario Gotze converted after Christian Pulisic won a penalty kick to lead Borussia Dortmund past Manchester City in an ICC showdown in Chicago.

CHICAGO -- Borussia Dortmund is a vastly different place from the club Marco Reus left as a 17-year-old. It's a very different place from the club he rejoined as a 23-year-old, too.

Reus left the academy in 2006 after 10 years in its classrooms and on its training fields. The senior side was 29 points adrift of champions Bayern Munich that season, stuck in seventh place, and fell at the first hurdle in the DFB-Pokal. He spent three years at Rot Weiss Ahlen, propelling the club from the third division...

Borussia Dortmund's moves in transfer market reflect a shift in club philosophy

Since the end of 2017, there has been as much talk about change at Borussia Dortmund as there would be from a political candidate campaigning to unseat his rival from office.

As performances on the pitch became bleaker, the language out of CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke and sporting director Michael Zorc became more radical. First, the team needed "readjustments." That term was quickly adjusted itself to "a sizable overhaul during the summer," and now, ahead of the 2018-19 campaign, the BVB bosses are...

Dortmund star Youssoufa Moukoko, 13, scores stunner for under-17s

He may only be 13, but Youssoufa Moukoko has already made quite a name for himself by scoring at leisure throughout the Borussia Dortmund academy tiers.

The prodigious striker, who has already been capped at Germany youth level, further boosted his reputation by scoring a simply brilliant solo goal for Dortmund's under-17 side this week.

The goal in question came against Bayer Leverkusen but only after Moukoko lifted it over one defender, sat a further two down on their backsides and then foxed...

Analysing Christian Pulisic and why big clubs covet his potential

With a number of Prem clubs monitoring Christian Pulisic's development at Dortmund, FC's Shaka Hislop shares why he feels Liverpool is the best fit.
Former U.S. international Brian McBride backs Christian Pulisic's comments about a lack of focus being to blame for the USMNT missing the World Cup.

Rather than at the World Cup in Russia a month later, the competitive part of Christian Pulisic's season ended with a 3-1 defeat in Hoffenheim on May 12. Borussia Dortmund's woeful trip to the provincial region of Kraichgau was perhaps a fitting denouement: Overall, 2017-18 has been a frustrating 10 months for the 19-year-old American and his two teams.

After a superb start, which featured six wins in seven league games, autumn brought a raft of painful defeats that saw BVB coach Peter Bosz, a proponent...

Borussia Dortmund's fourth coach in a year, Lucien Favre, has challenges ahead of him

On Tuesday, Borussia Dortmund unveiled their new head coach for the 2018-19 season. Swiss coach Lucien Favre has penned a two-year deal, joining the Westfalenstadion in a questionable move from Nice's Cote d'Azur.

After BVB had a messy divorce with Thomas Tuchel at the end of the 2016-17 campaign, a misunderstanding with Peter Bosz and a caretaker relationship with Peter Stoger, the 60-year-old is their fourth coach in little over one season. Did they find the right man to steer them through a difficult...
