Borussia Mönchengladbach have moved to replace  Bayern Munich-bound defender Dante with Europa League winner Alvaro Dominguez from Atheltico Madrid.

The 23-year-old passed a medical on Wednesday morning in Mönchengladbach before signing a five year deal with the Foals.

Alvaro Dominguez was our first choice for the left centre-back position which we were looking to fill after Dante’s departure,” said Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl.

He was a first-team regular at Athletico Madrid, won the Europa League in 2010 and 2012 and recently made the step up into the Spanish national team. We are proud that he has decided to join Borussia.”
