Borussia Dortmund have signed Chelsea defender Ian Maatsen on loan for the rest of the season.
The 21-year-old has made 15 appearances for Chelsea this term, but just three of those have been starts.
The Netherlands Under-21 international spent last season on loan at Burnley but rejected a permanent move to Turf Moor in August.
Although Maatsen is moving to Germany for now, he has also signed a contract extension until 2026 with Chelsea.
Speaking on Friday ahead of his side’s trip to Darmstadt on Saturday, Dortmund coach Edin Terzic backed Maatsen to make a positive impact at the club.
“We hope that Ian will quickly fit into the group and become an important factor for us,” he said.
