Wednesday 12 June:
Dortmund’s £7.5 bid for Danish left-winger Viktor Fischer has reportedly been accepted by Ajax. Earlier this morning it was believed the club were looking for a deal worth £9.25m for the 17 year-old, but BVB’s offer of £7.5m upfront plus 40% of any future transfer profit has sealed the deal ahead of the transfer window opening on 01 July.
The Dortmund board will confirm the club’s 2013-14 transfer budget at the weekend, but it’s believed to be around the £15m mark. Sebastian Kehl and Patrick Owomoleya, both due to leave the club at the end of June on free transfers after rejecting new contract offers, will be released early on compensation packages to free up wages ahead of the club meeting with Fischer’s agent.
