Chelsea have signed Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth £58 million.

The Bundesliga side confirmed on Wednesday morning that the 20-year-old will be loaned back to them until the end of the season.

Pulisic, an American international with 23 caps, made his debut for Dortmund three years ago. His contract with the club was due to run out in June 2020.

"It was always Christian's dream to play in the Premier League. That certainly has to do with his American background, and as a result we were unable to extend his contract," said Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc.

Against this background, we have decided to accept an extremely lucrative bid by Chelsea, given the low contract maturity.

Christian Pulisic is a character perfect player. I am sure that in the coming months he will do everything in his power to bring his high quality to the team and to achieve his sporting goals with his team-mates Borussia Dortmund.

Pulisic becomes Chelsea's third most expensive signing ever behind the £71 million paid for Kepa Arrizabalaga during the summer and the £60 million paid for Alvaro Morata in the summer of 2017.
