Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund has filled the vacant goalkeeper position behind regular goalkeeper Gregor Kobel. As the vice champion announced on Friday, Alexander Meyer is moving from second division Jahn Regensburg to BVB.
The 31-year-old signed a contract until 2024, inheriting the two reserve keeper Roman Bürki and Marwin Hitz, who are leaving the club in the summer.
“He was undoubtedly one of the strongest goalkeepers in the 2nd Bundesliga in recent years,” said the designated BVB sports director Sebastian Kehl about the new signing. Meyer is a very experienced goalkeeper who exudes calm and has high quality.
“When a club like BVB calls, I don’t have to think twice. From a sporting point of view, they are an absolute top team, and you don’t even have to talk about the atmosphere in the stadium. Just thinking about the yellow wall, I get Goosebumps. I’m really looking forward to the new task and also to being part of the BVB family,” said Meyer.
Meyer played 30 league games for Regensburg in the past season, playing a total of 94 matches in the lower house. The goalkeeper, who went through the youth department of Hamburger SV, previously played for Energie Cottbus and VfB Stuttgart, among others.
