Borussia Dortmund is one of the highest talents in Germany and provides long-term opportunities for U17 player Nnamdi Collins. The 16-year-old defender has been wearing black and yellow since 2016 and was already deployed at this season’s U17 Bundesliga.
Collins, who could remain within the U17 for an additional year, is predicted to play within the U19 Bundesliga from next season, the official statement says. Young coordinator Lars Ricken commented on the extension of the contract: “We are very happy that we will keep an exceptional talent of young German football at BVB within the future with Nnamdi.”
Sports Director Michael Zorc also added: “We want to bring Nnamdi step by step to the professional sector and provides him time to develop.”Nnamdi Collins is happy about the opportunities hospitable him in Dortmund:” I have been playing since the age of 12. He was a BVB founder and owed the club tons. My ambition is to become a BVB professional and that I am thankful that each one of my coaches, my family, and my advisors are so supportive of me and that I anticipate the approaching years at BVB.”
For the Black and Yellows, having Collins to remain amid competition from other major clubs is superb news. Borussia Dortmund has proved to be the simplest place for young players to enjoy playing time, and hopefully over the subsequent few years we will see Collins joining the first-team squad.
Collins is simply one among the various young names to seem out for within the coming years at the Borussia Dortmund Academy, with Youssoufa Moukoko, Bradley Fink, Samuel Bamba, Lion Lord, and Dennis Lütke-Frie a number of the opposite promising youngsters making headlines for the youth teams.
