After speculation rumbled on from the end of the season, Borussia Dortmund have finally got their man.

Talented teen, Emre Mor has joined the German giants from FC Nordsjaelland on a long-term, five-year contract.

Mor will join up with fellow BVB team-mate, Nuri Sahin for the upcoming European Championships before starting at his new club.

Time to deliver on that promise

Born in Denmark but now a full Turkish international, the 18-year-old has been courted by Europe's top teams and touted as one of the continent's most promising players.

He earned his football education with Lyngby Boldklub, a club that are known for their fantastic academy. Mor then switched to Nordsjaelland after nine years at Lyngby.

Dortmund were one of the clubs who, reportedly, showed interest in him a year ago but instead he opted to remain in Denmark.

He managed two goals and two assists for Nordsjaelland this season, playing mainly as a centre-forward. He is, however, comfortable on the right.

Zorc and Mor have their say

"Emre Mor is a highly gifted young player with considerable versatility in attack and huge development potential," beamed sporting director, Michael Zorc.

Both Zorc and Mor were understandably pleased to have got the deal over the line, and secured his future at the Signal Iduna Park.

The Turk then had his own say on the move, as he spoke to the club website. Mor immediately cited the superb support: "BVB is a wonderful club in Europe with unique fans."

He admitted he is "immensely looking forward" to getting to know his new team-mates, with a possible debut against Bayern Munich in the DFL-Supercup to look forward to.

Mor concluded, "I can hardly wait for the season to begin and to make my debut appearance for Borussia."
