Bundesliga DONE DEAL: Waldemar Anton unveiled as a Dortmund player from Stuttgart

Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund has signed Waldemar Anton (27) from VfB Stuttgart.

The central defender, who was part of the German national team’s European Championship squad and most recently played in the quarter-finals against Spain, signed a contract on Monday that runs until June 30, 2028.

“I’m really looking forward to my first game at Signal Iduna Park, the fans and my teammates. I originally had no intention of changing clubs – but then Borussia Dortmund came along.

“A top club that had just reached the Champions League final. That shows the potential this club has. From the very beginning, everyone in charge at BVB gave me the feeling that they really wanted to sign me and that I could and should play an important role. I’m really looking forward to it,” said the defender.

Anton (196 Bundesliga games; 6 goals, 7 assists) was trained at Hannover 96’s youth performance center and moved to Stuttgart in the summer of 2020, where he became a key player.

Last season, he played a major role in his team’s surprising runner-up finish, conceding the fewest goals after champions Leverkusen. In March 2024, the defender made his debut for the national team and subsequently played three more international matches.

Anton will join the BVB squad at the end of July and travel to the training camp in Bad Ragaz (Switzerland).
