Mixed Spell in Dortmund

In 2013, he signed for English giants Chelsea from Bayer 04 Leverkusen and he would have a successful stint at the London club. He returned to Germany after two years, signing for VfL Wolfsburg, where he won the DFB Pokal and German Super Cup in 2015.

In 2016, Borussia Dortmund secured his services for $27.5 million, signing him on a five-year deal from Wolfsburg, and he immediately won his second German Cup title with The Black and Yellows. A mixed spell at the club, however, saw him spend the last two years out on loan at Fulham and Spartak Moscow, respectively.

Speaking to the BVB official website, Schurrle stated: “Looking back, it’s been a time with a lot of ups and downs, and a valuable experience, both in the sporting sense but also privately.

“I’d like to thank the club’s bosses and wish the club and its special fans all the best for the future.”
