Borussia Dortmund have announced the signing of defender Matthias Ginter from fellow Bundesliga side Freiburg.

"A boyhood dream came true for me today," The AP quotes Ginter as saying. "I have always been a big Dortmund fan and now I can wear the shirt of my favorite club. I want to take the next step in my sporting development in Dortmund."

The defender made 70 Bundesliga appearances for Freiburg.
