Borussia Dortmund have confirmed the signing of Ajax striker Julian Rijkhoff.

The 16-year-old has signed a three-year deal with the Bundesliga giants and joins the club’s U17 side.

The striker has been prolific for Ajax’s youth sides but was unhappy with his lack of prospective in Amsterdam. He turned down the chance to remain at Ajax and has chosen a future with Dortmund.

Lars Ricken, head of the Dortmund youth academy, told the club’s website, “We are very happy that we brought him to Dortmund”
