News - transfers
Ryan Kent joins Freiburg on loan
Liverpool winger Ryan Kent has joined Freiburg on loan for the remainder of the 2017-18 season. Kent signed a new long-term contract with the Reds earlier this month, and had plenty of loan offers on the table for the current campaign. Several of those offers were thought to be from Championship sides - with the Rams, Sunderland and Middlesbrough all reportedly interested. But Kent has opted for Germany, and will continue his development at the Schwarzwald-Stadion with Freiburg.
Belfodil signs for Werder
Werder have bolstered their attacking options by signing Ishak Belfodil. The 25-year-old has signed for the Green-Whites with immediate effect from Belgian first division side Standard Liege on a one-year loan basis. An option to buy is also included in the deal.
Origi completes loan move to Wolfsburg
Divock Origi has completed a loan move to Wolfsburg from Liverpool. Belgium international Origi, 22, has had little game time at Anfield this season, making one substitute's appearance for Jurgen Klopp's side. Liverpool paid French side Lille £10m to sign Origi in July 2014 when he was still a teenager and in his three-year spell at Anfield he has scored 21 goals in 77 appearances.
Bayer L. 31.8.17
Bayer Leverkusen sign Retsos
Bayer Leverkusen have signed Greece international Panagiotis Retsos from Olympiacos on a five-year contract. The versatile defender, 19, became the Greek club's youngest captain of all time at the age of 18 last season and he has been declared as an "investment for the club's future" by Leverkusen's sporting director Rudi Voller.
Yarmolenko joins Borussia Dortmund
Borussia Dortmund have completed the signing of Ukraine midfielder Andriy Yarmolenko from Dynamo Kiev for €25m. The Ukraine international joins the German club on a four-year contract after 339 competitive games for Kiev. Dortmund brought in Yarmolenko as a replacement for Ousmane Dembele, 20, who completed the paperwork to finalise his €105m transfer to Barcelona. The 27-year-old has won 69 caps for his country.
Stuttgart sign Santiago Ascacibar
Santiago Lionel Ascacibar makes the move from Estudiantes de La Plata to VfB. The 20-year-old Argentine has signed a contract until 2022. In February 2016, the youngster made his professional debut in Argentina's top-flight. Since then, the midfielder has made 46 competitive appearances for Estudiantes. Santiago Ascacibar represented Argentina's Under 20 national team at the South American championships in 2017 and the 2017 World Cup, playing eleven games in total.
Jonathas moves to Hannover from Rubin Kazan
Hannover have completed the signing of Brazilian striker Jonathas from Russian outfit Rubin Kazan. The 28-year-old, who has also played in Brazil, the Netherlands, Italy and Spain, has put pen to paper on a contract until 2020. Jonathas represented Cruzeiro, Ipatinga, Alkmaar, Brescia, Torino, Latina, Pescara and Elche, before moving to Kazan from Real Sociedad in summer 2016. He scored 13 times in the Russian Premier Liga, taking his senior career tally to 81 goals in 229 competitive appearances.
Wolfsburg sign Marcel Tisserand
Wolfsburg have responded to the injury suffered by John Anthony Brooks by signing centre-back Marcel Tisserand on loan from Bundesliga 2 club Ingolstadt. The 24-year-old defender, who can play at centre-back or at left-back, made 28 Bundesliga appearances with Ingosltadt last season, impressing during his first season in the league, despite the club's relegation to the second tier. The Congo international, who becomes Jonker's ninth signing of the summer, will wear the number 29 shirt.
Boateng returns to Germany
Eintracht Frankfurt have completed the signing of Kevin-Prince Boateng on a free transfer. Earlier this week, the former Ghana international terminated his contract at Las Palmas and returns to the Bundesliga on a three-year deal. The midfielder, 30, will replace injured Mexico international Marco Fabian, who was ruled out for the remainder of 2017. Boateng is reunited with coach Niko Kovac and sporting executive Fredi Bobic at Frankfurt, having been at Hertha Berlin with them.
Dortmund take action after Dembele skips training
It seems like Ousmane Dembele is going to great lengths in order to force through a move to Barcelona. Borussia Dortmund has already released a statement today where they confirmed that they were in negotiations with the Blaugrana, but they rejected the bid as it was well under their valuation. Sporting director Michael Zorc has revealed that the club has now suspended Dembele from training until next week as punishment for his failure to turn up to training.
"Ousmane Dembele missed BVB training today without any valid reason and he obviously consciously made the decision to do this. Of course we will sanction this behaviour," Zorc said. "In addition we have suspended the player from training and from taking part in any match day activities after discussing this with the Head Coach until after the Cup match this coming weekend."
Aogo signs contract with Stuttgart
Former Germany international Dennis Aogo has joined Stuttgart from Schalke on a two-year deal. The 30-year-old left-back has also played for Freiburg and Hamburg and has made a total of 213 Bundesliga appearances. Aogo becomes the second experienced Stuttgart signing in a week, after the arrival of Holger Badstuber from Bayern Munich.
Stuttgart snap up Badstuber
Holger Badstuber has agreed to join promoted Stuttgart on a free transfer. The 28-year-old left-back spent two years in Stuttgart's youth academy before moving to Bayern Munich, where he made his first-team debut in 2009. After battling a number of injuries and losing his place on the first team under Carlo Ancelotti, he secured a loan in January to Schalke, making 10 Bundesliga appearances. Bayern announced in May that Badstuber would be allowed to leave the club on a free transfer.
