Mahmoud Dahoud, a former Germany midfielder, has joined Brighton & Hove Albion from Borussia Dortmund on a four-year deal, the Premier League club said on Friday without disclosing the financial details of the agreement.
The 27-year-old, who had surgery on his shoulder last year, will join on July 1 after his contract expires with the Bundesliga runners-up.
“I’m excited to have Mahmoud on my team. I wanted him when I was at Sassuolo, and I’m sure he is going to be a top player for us,” manager Roberto De Zerbi said.
Dahoud made his international debut against Turkey in 2020 and has since earned two senior caps for Germany. After finishing sixth to qualify for the Europa League, Brighton will play in Europe for the first time the following season.
“He’s a quality player; he’s got lots of experience playing at a high level in Germany with great experience in Europe, too,” technical director David Weir said.
On Wednesday, Brighton also announced the signing of 37-year-old midfielder James Milner, a free agent after leaving Liverpool.
