Borussia Dortmund loanee Jeremy Toljan will stay with Sassuolo for another season, with a mandatory purchase option at the end of the spell.

After failing to force his way into Lucien Favre’s plans, Toljan joined US Sassuolo on a loan deal before the start of the season. And after a series of good performances from the full-back, the Serie A side have reportedly decided to extend his loan deal by another year with a mandatory purchase clause of five million euros if he reaches a certain number of appearances.

"Speaking to Sport1, Toljan’s agent Ersin Akan said: “There have been many requests for ‘Jerry’ since he has performed so well in Italy. However, he feels very comfortable in Sassuolo and has developed enormously there.”“The fact that he can compete with top strikers every week in Serie A as a defender has encouraged us to stay. We’re confident that it’s going to happen quickly.”"

Toljan joined Borussia Dortmund before the start of the 2017/18 season, but wasn’t able to hold down a starting spot. He was loaned out to Celtic in January 2019, but wasn’t able to make an impact in Scotland either.

The loan move to Sassuolo has given him the chance to play week in, week out this season, and he has earned good reviews for his performances. Toljan has made a total of 25 appearances for Sassuolo so far this season, scoring one goal and providing two assists.

Toljan is one of the seven Borussia Dortmund players out on loan at the moment. While André Schürrle is set to return to Dortmund following the end of his loan spell in Russia, the future of the rest of the loanees remains uncertain.
