Borussia Dortmund announced on Friday that they have signed German winger Andre Schurrle from VfL Wolfsburg.

The current Bundesliga runners-up have penned a five-year deal with the former Chelsea player, just a day after resigning Mario Gotze from rivals Bayern Munich.

According to reports, Dortmund will pay around €30 million for the 2014 World Cup winner, who had three years left on his deal at the Volkswagen Arena.

During his 18-month stint with Wolfsburg, Schurrle made 62 appearances for the club and scored a total of 13 goals, setting up a further 10. However, his performance could not help Wolfsburg qualify for Europe, as they finished eighth in the Bundesliga.

At the Westfalenstadion, Schurrle will reunite with former coach Thomas Tuchel, who promoted him to Mainz’s first team when taking charge of the club only days before the 2009-10 season.
