Borussia Dortmund on Thursday confirmed the signing of Belgium defender Thomas Meunier on a four-year deal with no transfer fee after his deal with Paris Saint-Germain ran out.

"Thomas Meunier is a player who has proven his quality at the highest level, including in the Champions League and with the national team over a long period of time," said Dortmund's sports director Michael Zorc.
"His experience will do us a lot of good."
The 28-year-old right back will link up with Belgian national teammates Axel Witsel and Thorgan Hazard under Swiss head coach Lucien Favre.
After four years in France, Meunier says he is looking for a new challenge with Dortmund, who have finished runners-up in the Bundesliga for the last two seasons.
"Borussia Dortmund plays exactly the kind of football I want to play: exciting, authentic and natural," said Meunier in a statement.
"I'm ambitious and I want to win titles with Dortmund just like I did with Brugge and Paris," he added having won three French League titles with PSG and the 2015/16 Belgian league.
The transfer means that Meunier will not feature for PSG in the Champions League quarter-finals when the competition resumes this August in Lisbon.
He faced Dortmund when PSG lost the first-leg clash 2-1 away in the last 16, but the French club went through after winning the return leg 2-0 in Paris, for which Meunier was suspended.
Dortmund are reportedly also on the verge of signing England Under-17 prospect Jude Bellingham from Birmingham City.
