Burnley strike agreement for Borussia Dortmund defender

Premier League outfit Burnley have, on Sunday, sealed a deal for an up-and-coming member of the defensive ranks at Borussia Dortmund.

The player in question? Soumaila Coulibaly.

For those not familiar with his talents, Coulibaly is a 19-year-old central defender, who has previously lined out for home country France at several youth levels.

After spending three years on the books of Paris Saint-Germain, the youngster went on to link up with Dortmund in 2021, before breaking into the first-team picture this past season.

Sitting behind a number of more established options in the central defensive ranks at Signal Iduna Park, however, the BVB powers that be have this weekend come to the decision to cash in.

As confirmed by Florian Plettenberg of Sky Germany, Coulibaly is all set to make the move to England, with Burnley.

Despite the stopper having made just a solitary Bundesliga appearance in Dortmund colours, the Bundesliga heavyweights are expected to bring in €16-18 million from Coulibaly’s signature.

He will now fly out for a medical at Turf Moor on Monday, before putting pen to paper on terms with Vincent Kompany’s troops.
