Dortmund now targeting English market after Jadon Sancho success

Jadon Sancho impresses for Dortmund

Jadon Sancho signed for German outfit Borussia Dortmund in August of 2017 from Manchester City for a fee of around £8 million.

Since signing for Dortmund the young winger has been very impressive.

Sancho made 21 appearances in all competitions last season, in which he scored five and assisted seven.

However, it is the 2018/19 season were Sancho has impressed the most.

In 11 Bundesliga games this season,  Sancho has scored four and assisted seven, a superb record considering six of those appearances were as a sub.

Sancho also became the second youngest English player to score a Champions League goal when his side beat Atletico Madrid in October.

This excellent form has earned Sancho yet another call-up to the latest England squad.

‘In England, the young players haven’t been getting the chance to play because the structure of the clubs’

After the success they had with signing Sancho, Sebastian Kehl who has a key role in Dortmund’s management, revealed that Dortmund will continue to target the English market for young talent:

“The focus is on the English market.

 “Jadon is a good example. We take a lot of care over our scouting. In England, the young players haven’t been getting the chance to play because the structure of the clubs and squads is totally different.

“It could be a good thing for us. But we have to be fast. If we’re not fast, then…”
