Dembele wins rookie of the season

Borussia Dortmund winger Ousmane Dembele has been awarded the Bundesliga Rookie of the Season award after a scintillating debut campaign.

The France international was an ever-present for Dortmund as they walked away with the DFB-Pokal and finished third in the league.

With six goals and 13 assists in 32 top-flight outings, Dembele pipped Nabil Bentaleb (Schalke), Riechedly Bazoer (Wolfsburg), Caglar Soyuncu (Freiburg) and Jordan Torunarigha (Hertha Berlin) to the award, which was voted by fans.

Since joining Dortmund last year from Ligue 1 side Rennes for €15million, the 20-year-old has scored 10 goals and registered 21 assists in 49 games across all competitions.
