Bundesliga club has filled the vacant goalkeeper position behind regular keeper Gregor Kobel.

Bundesliga football club Borussia Dortmund has filled the vacant goalkeeper position behind regular keeper Gregor Kobel. As the vice-champion announced on Friday, Alexander Meyer has joined BVB from second-division club Jahn Regensburg. The 31-year-old signed a contract until 2024 and thus replaces the two substitute keepers Roman B├╝rki and Marwin Hitz, who will leave the club in the summer.

“He has undoubtedly been one of the strongest goalkeepers in the 2nd Bundesliga in recent years,” said designated BVB sporting director Sebastian Kehl about the new arrival. Meyer is a very experienced goalkeeper who radiates calmness and possesses high quality.

Meyer played 30 league games for Regensburg in the past season, making a total of 94 appearances in the lower league. Previously, the goalkeeper, who came through the youth department of Hamburger SV, played for Energie Cottbus and VfB Stuttgart, among others.
