Borussia Dortmund have confirmed the signing of Red Bull Salzburg hot-shot Erling Haaland.

After his sensational start to the season, the Norwegian striker had courted interest from several of Europe's top clubs, including the likes of Manchester United, Juventus and Real Madrid.

But Dortmund have stolen a march on the rest of the pack and signed the 19-year old boy-wonder to a deal until 2024.

Haaland, son of former Leeds and Manchester City midfielder Alf-Inge, was linked with a switch to fellow Red Bull aligned club RB Leipzig.

But Dortmund will be the next destination for his development, with the player also able to play in the knockout stages of the Champions League - starting with the round of 16 tie against PSG.

While Salzburg were sent into the Europa League after finishing third in Group E, Haaland was in incredible form in Europe's premier competition.

He scored eight goals in his first six Champions League appearances, including a hat-trick on his debut in a 6-2 thrashing of Genk.

Haaland has netted a ridiculous 28 goals in 22 games in all competitions this term and will look to continue his ridiculous record in front of goal with the support of Jadon Sancho, Marco Reus and co in Lucien Favre's side.

Dortmund are said to have paid around £18 million for his services thanks to a release clause in his deal, with Haaland poised to earn around £130,000 a week in Germany.
