Dortmund sign Alcacer from Barca on a permanent deal

Borussia Dortmund has completed the permanent signing of Spain striker Paco Alcacer from Barcelona.

The 25-year-old Alcacer joined the German leader on a season-long loan in August, and Dortmund had the option of making the deal permanent.

Dortmund says on Friday that Alcacer's contract will run until June 2023.

Alcacer has nine goals in eight competitive matches this season, with his form earning him a recall to the Spain squad.

The Spaniard's presence in the team has given them a much-needed boost since the start of the season. Along with Alcacer, youngster Sancho's inclusion has given Dortmund a wider range of attack with captain Marco Reus making his mark since his return from injury.
