Bayern complete Hummels capture

FC Bayern München have officially completed the signing of Germany international Mats Hummels on a five-year deal from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund.

The 27-year-old links up with the Bavarians just two days after facing his new employers in the DFB-Pokal final in Berlin, having joined Dortmund on a permanent deal from Bayern back in 2009.

Hummels, who made just one senior appearance for Bayern prior to joining Dortmund, racked up just under 220 appearances for Dortmund, scoring 19 goals in the process.

“Saying goodbye to Dortmund was difficult for me of course,” Hummels told Bayern’s official website. “It was similar to 2008, when it was the other way around.

“Now I’m looking forward to everything that awaits me at FC Bayern. I’m very excited.”

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: “We’re delighted to welcome Mats back to FC Bayern. Not only are we strengthening our squad with a world-class centre-back, but also with a player who accepts responsibility and who is our own youth product. First of all we wish him a successful Euro 2016.”
