Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that an agreement has been reached to re-sign Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels, subject to a medical.
Hummels left Dortmund for Bayern in 2016 having spent eight years at Signal-Iduna Park and establishing himself as one of the best centre-backs in world football.
He has continued to enjoy success in Bavaria, winning three Bundesliga titles, but will now return to Dortmund in a deal worth a reported €38 million (£33.8m/$42.5m).
The Germany defender picked up his fifth German title last season as Bayern recovered from a poor start to win the league by two points, edging out Dortmund.
The 30-year-old also won his second DFB Pokal as Bayern beat RB Leipzig 3-0 in the final, but it was far from a straightforward season for the central defender.
Hummels started just over half of Bayern’s league games last season, losing his place in the starting line-up for several matches throughout the campaign after coming under fire for poor displays at the back.
