FSV Mainz 05 have announced on their official website that the transfer of midfield ace Yunus Malli to Borussia Dortmund is off for the time being.
He has been the most discussed player within the Black and Yellow community for quite some time. Yunus Malli could join his former coach Thomas Tuchel at Borussia Dortmund, increasing squad depth and overall quality of BVB’s attack.
Borussia Dortmund’s left-back Marcel Schmelzer will miss the start of the Rückrunde against Borussia Mönchengladbach. The match will also come too soon for Sven Bender and Nuri Sahin.
BVB coach Thomas Tuchel told the media on Friday that he expects one or two signings to arrive at the club before the transfer windows closes, with Yunus Malli and Andriy Yarmolenko currently most heavily linked with the club.
