Sydney: Australian teenager Mustafa Amini has signed a four-year contract with Bundlesliga champions Borussia Dortmund in a deal that allows the midfielder to play another season with Central Coast Mariners in the A-League.
The 18-year-old with a distinctive bright Afro hairstyle would remain on loan to the Mariners until May next year before crossing to Germany, the club said on its website .
"I`m really excited to be joining Dortmund, they`re a big club with amazing supporters," said Amini, who trained with Dortmund earlier this year.
Amini, who will play in the Under-20 World Cup in Colombia starting on July 29, said he would use his first payment from Dortmund to buy his parents a television set with European sports channels to allow them to watch him overseas.
"A big screen television would be a nice way of paying them back and showing them how grateful I am," he told local broadcaster SBS.
