Borussia Dortmund is expected to sign Waldemar Anton

Waldemar Anton has reportedly chosen to join Borussia Dortmund, and the defender will likely be the team's first summer transfer acquisition. For the 27-year-old's signing, Bayer Leverkusen and the Black and Yellows were in competition. Furthermore, it appears that Anton has turned down Xabi Alonso's interest in favor of a transfer to BVB.

Borussia Dortmund wants to activate Anton's 22 million euro release clause as soon as possible under his contract. The Germany international is expected to have a similar effect at the Westfalenstadion after being instrumental in Stuttgart's second-place Bundesliga result this season. After Borussia Dortmund decided not to extend Mats Hummels' contract, the team was in dire need of a new center-back. Niklas Süle's future is still up in the air, and Anton is anticipated to play with Nico Schlotterbeck in the center of the BVB defense next year.
