Mahmoud Dahoud will be leaving Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Mahmoud Dahoud’s time at Borussia Dortmund will come to an end in the summer, with sporting director Sebastian Kehl revealing that his contract will not be extended. The midfielder will be out of contract at the end of the season, and the BVB sporting director has now said that the decision has already been made to part ways with him in the summer.

In an interview with BILD, Kehl said:

"“I had a very open and honest conversation with Mo last week. I told him that we will not be extending his contract in the summer. Mo has been with us for six years now, he is a very good footballer, and I really have a very high opinion of him, both in sporting terms and as a person. Nevertheless, we have decided to take this step.”"

Dahoud was a regular starter for Borussia Dortmund before being plagued with shoulder injuries for a large part of last year. He has been limited to just six appearances across all competitions so far this season, and was forced to spend several months on the sidelines as he underwent surgery on his injured shoulder in the first half of the season.

The Germany international returned to training in January, but has been limited to just 14 minutes of playing time since the turn of the year.

Mahmoud Dahoud, who joined Borussia Dortmund from Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2017, has made a total of 137 appearances for the club. The 27 year old will now be looking for a new club. Although a player of his quality is sure to attract plenty of interest.

Borussia Dortmund’s decision to let Dahoud leave the club on a free transfer is certainly an interesting one, and there will no doubt be plenty of debate on this in the coming weeks.
