Borussia Dortmund outcast Andre Schürrle set for loan move to Russian side Spartak Moscow

Borussia Dortmund winger Andre Schürrle is on his way to Russia, with Spartak Moscow set to sign him on a season long loan deal.

According to Russian outlet Championat, Spartak Moscow have agreed a deal with Borussia Dortmund to sign Schürrle on a season long loan deal, and will have the option to buy him for eight million euros at the end of the season.

The former Germany international spent last season on loan at Premier League side Fulham, but wasn’t able to prevent them from getting relegated to the second division. Schürrle returned to Dortmund in the summer, but the BVB bosses made it clear to him that he had no future at the Westfalenstadion, and now he is on the move again.

Schürrle arrived at Borussia Dortmund in 2016 for a club record fee of 30 million euros. A lot was expected of him following his move from Wolfsburg, but injuries and poor form constantly plagued him during his time at the club. In his two full seasons with the club, Schürrle managed to find the net just eight times in 51 appearances in all competitions.

The 28 year old still has two years left on his Borussia Dortmund contract but it is quite unlikely that he will ever play for the Black and Yellows again.

A move to Spartak Moscow could help Schürrle rediscover his form and resurrect his career. Spartak are in the Europa League this season, and will be hoping to improve on last season’s fifth place finish in the Russian Premier League.
