Borussia Dortmund extended the contract with shooting star Jamie Bynoe-Gittens shortly after his 18th birthday. BVB agreed with the English U19 European champions to work together until 2025.
The offensive player scored his first Bundesliga goal in the 3-1 away win against SC Freiburg on Friday.
Dortmund announced that the new contract had already been signed last week. Bynoe-Gittens had turned 18 on August 8th.
Bynoe-Gittens made his league debut for Dortmund last season, and he also won the German A-Junior championship with BVB’s U19s. The teenager was a “game changer” and “a player who can make the difference for us,” coach Edin Terzic praised after the win in Freiburg.
Sports Director Kehl also emphasized the qualities of the high-flyer: “Speed and creativity have always distinguished Jamie, with his unpredictability in one-on-ones he gives our squad a very special element even at a young age. It’s fun to see how he is working on himself and his game. We are far from seeing the end of this development, we will give him the necessary time for it.”
Bynoe-Gittens moved from Manchester City to Dortmund in 2020. “It was always my goal to continue on the path I felt I had just started at BVB after Corona and a few injuries at the beginning,” he said.
