Jadon Sancho has signed a new Borussia Dortmund contract extension until 2022. Last summer the England Under-19 winger joined Dortmund from Manchester City. Last season, he made 12 Bundesliga appearances. He scored once and recorded four assists.
The 18-year-old made a bright start to the 2018-19 season. After six league games, Sancho tops the assists table with five assists and his impressive performance has led to a new four-year extension at the club.
Sancho told the club website: “I am very glad that I decided to move to Dortmund just over a year ago, because everything turned out to be true: this city lives football like no other, and at BVB young players are given playing time. Here I can develop excellently. I am completely happy and satisfied and proud to be part of this team.”
Earlier this month, Sancho entered the record books when becoming the youngest English player to make his Champions League debut for a foreign club. He tweeted: Words can’t describe !! Dreamt about this day as a kid. Blessed to have made my Champions League Debut tonight with a win! Well done team! 🙏🏼 #JS7 pic.twitter.com/vsAMPZ8e8c— Jadon Sancho (@Sanchooo10) September 18, 2018
Dan Micciche said: “Provided he doesn’t become restricted he could be our Neymar-type player – in terms of being unpredictable, playing on that left-hand side. And he’s flamboyant, entertaining to watch. But like Neymar, he’s effective with it. In most games he’ll create something – it’s not a beauty contest. He’s not on the pitch flicking it over someone’s head for the sake of it.”
