Serie A side Hellas Verona have this afternoon announced the signing of Borussia Dortmund attacker Jayden Braaf on loan with a reported option to buy.
This comes after Fabrizio Romano reported on Friday that Braaf would leave BVB for the Italian club. BVB have also waived a buy-back clause but will receive a percentage of any future transfer.
Braaf’s departure comes just months after joining the Bundesliga club on a free transfer from Manchester City in the summer. Kicker reported last week that Borussia Dortmund have been looking to offload the Dutchman, who was reportedly fined the youngster after turning up late too many times, whilst his body language wasn’t up to what BVB expected.
The 20-year-old managed just 266 minutes across seven 3. Liga games for BVB II this season.
Borussia Dortmund, currently sixth and nine points behind leaders Bayern Munich, resume their Bundesliga campaign against Augsburg on Sunday.
