Dortmund - Borussia Dortmund have signed the attacker Maximilian Philipp from Bundesliga rivals Freiburg for a fee German media reports have put at around 20 million.

"Welcome to Dortmund, Maximilian Philipp!" wrote Dortmund on their Twitter account on Wednesday alongside a picture of Philipp holding a BVB shirt.

Philipp, 23, scored nine goals for Freiburg in the season just finished to help them finish seventh in the Bundesliga and qualify for the Europa League.

The signing, on a five-year deal, comes 24 hours after the German Cup winners announced the appointment of Dutchman Peter Bosz as their new coach.

He arrives from Ajax to succeed the sacked Thomas Tuchel in the dugout at the Signal Iduna Park.
