A week after the departure of Thomas Tuchel, the Bundesliga club has moved in to name Peter Bosz as the man who will take over the reins at the Westfalenstadion.
The 53 year old joins Dortmund on a two-year contract after a stellar campaign with Ajax, having led the relatively young squad to the Europa League final and also runners up in the Eredivisie.
Bosz, however, did not come cheap as it is reported that BVB had to agree a €5 million pay out to the Eredivisie side.
The German club was said to have made Nice coach Lucien Favre their top target for the position but after the French club strongly outlined their intentions to keep the gaffer, their attention quickly shifted to the Ajax man.
Bosz, becomes only the second Dutchman to take charge at Dortmund after Bert van Marwijk, who coached the club as they battled bankruptcy in the mid-2000s.
He will most certainly take pleasure in taking over another young squad in Borussia Dortmund, that finished third in the Bundesliga last season, securing automatic Champions League qualification as well as winning the DFB Pokal, their first trophy in five years.
