Emre Can will join Borussia Dortmund permanently from Juventus in July on a deal that runs until 2024, the Bundesliga club has announced.

The 26-year-old Germany international initially moved to Dortmund in January on a loan deal that runs until the end of this campaign.

He scored on his first Bundesliga appearance in a 4-3 loss to Bayer Leverkusen and started last week's 4-0 thrashing of Eintracht Frankfurt.
