The German player, who was on loan the last two seasons, was released and is now looking for a club.
Borussia Dortmund is undergoing a restructuring and one of the decisions that has been made is to free Andre Schurrle, player with one year left on his contract. The reason? The former Chelsea man, who had been loaned out in 2018, is not in future plans and it is better for both parties to reach such agreements.
Schurrle arrived in Dortmund from Wolfsburg in July 2016 worth close to € 32 million and for five seasons that ended up being four. The 2014 world champion in Brazil had 33 appearances in two Bundesliga seasons before starting to rotate for Fulham and Spartak Moscow, teams in which he was on loan.
“I would like to thank those responsible for BVB and wish the club and its special fans the best for the future,” said the 29-year-old, who will now have to find a new institution, preferably in his country to which he wants to return.
