American Exports: Joe Gyau completes transfer to Borussia Dortmund II from Hoffenheim

AMSTERDAM – Hoffenheim winger Joseph Gyau moved to Borussia Dortmund II on Monday, inking a one-year contract with the 3.Liga side.

The 21-year-old will be joining countryman Junior Flores on German powerhouse Borussia Dortmund's reserve side, which is managed by former US international David Wagner. Dortmund paid a small fee for Gyau, who had one year remaining on his Hoffenheim deal.

"Dortmund sees in Gyau a very flexible, fast, and talented offensive midfielder," read a statement on the official Borussia Dortmund website.

The Florida native appeared only three times for the Hoffenheim first team in two years with the club, twice in Bundesliga action and once in the DfB-Pokal. Gyau did post nine goals and six assists in 55 games for their fourth-division reserve team, including seven strikes last season.

Borussia Dortmund II, who finished 14th last season, will begin the new campaign with a league trip to Rot-Weiß Erfurt on July 26.
