BVB – Rumor: Borussia Dortmund would have extended at short notice with Dahoud

At the beginning of the week, Borussia Dortmund’s sporting director Sebastian Kehl announced that midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud’s expiring contract would not be extended. Now, however, new details have come to light.

As the WAZ reported, BVB was by no means concerned with getting rid of the national player. Rather, a short-term extension at the club would have been quite conceivable.

After Dahoud had extended 2021 by a further twelve months with a considerable salary cut, BVB has now tried to do this again. But the player and his advisors are said to have sought a longer working paper, which Kehl rejected.

How things will continue for Dahoud is open. According to the newspaper, the ex-Gladbach player was already interested in clubs like Milan, Napoli and Leicester City in January. He is available for free in the summer.

BVB – rumor: Borussia apparently on Norway talent

In the winter transfer window, a move from Hugo Vetlesen to VfB Stuttgart failed. Now BVB is said to have put out feelers to the 22-year-old from Norwegian club FK Bodö/Glimt.

That reports sky and reports that in addition to Borussia, Hertha BSC, Union Berlin and VfL Bochum are said to be interested in the midfielder. And VfB is also further along.

However, the potential buyer would now have to dig deeper into his pocket, since Vetlesen has now extended his contract, which expires at the end of the season, until 2025.

Vetlesen has now collected 56 points in 106 games for Bodö/Glimt and made his senior debut for Norway in November.
