American international Christian Pulisic, regarded as one of the hottest properties in European football, signed for Premier League side Chelsea for a reported fee of £58 million ($74m) from Borussia Dortmund. With the transfer, Pulisic becomes the most expensive American signing ever.

The 20-year-old right winger – who has had more playing time in the Champions League this term than the Bundesliga as coach Lucien Favre generally prefers England international Jadon Sancho in that position – has been loaned back to the German league leaders until the end of the season.

“In the summer I move on to Chelsea and to a new competition, the English Premier League,” Pulisic said in a statement issued by Chelsea. “It’s a privilege to have signed for such a legendary club and I look forward to working hard towards being a contributor to their team of world class players.” Pulisic, who was also linked with Liverpool, had been at Dortmund since he was 15.
