Cairo – 29 August 2017: Borussia Dortmund signed a 4-year deal with Ukrainian attacking midfielder Andriy Yarmolenko from Dynamo Kiev worth €25 million ($30M).
“Andriy is a player we've tracked for a long time and who stands for top level football, both on club and national team level,” Dortmund Sporting Manager, Michael Zork told reporters.
