Talented forward Charles Herrmann is reportedly set to leave Borussia Dortmund when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Borussia Dortmund are seemingly resigned to losing one of the most talented forwards in their youth team ranks, with Charles Herrmann on the verge of joining Borussia Mönchengladbach. This is being reported by Ruhr Nachrichten, who add that the 18 year old will be out of contract at the end of the current campaign.

Herrmann has yet to make his first-team debut for Borussia Dortmund, but did shine for the Germany U-17s last year as they won the FIFA U-17 World Cup and the European Championship.

The versatile forward has five goals and two assists to his name for the BVB U-19s this season, but has found playing time hard to come by in recent weeks with Cole Campbell and Paris Brunner ahead of him in the pecking order.

According to the newspaper, Borussia Dortmund held talks to extend Herrmann's contract, and Werder Bremen were also interested. But he has now made the decision to join Borussia Mönchengladbach. He will hope to take the next steps in his development and make the step up to the first-team with the Foals in the coming months.

Before his move to Gladbach, Herrmann will hope to help the Borussia Dortmund U-19s win the A-Junioren Bundesliga title. Following their win over Hertha Berlin in the semifinals, the young Black and Yellows will go up against the Hoffenheim U-19s in the final on Thursday evening.
