Borussia Dortmund have re-signed Jadon Sancho on loan until the end of the season

Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho has rejoined former club Borussia Dortmund on loan until the end of the season.

Sancho returns to the Bundesliga club two-and-a-half years after joining United in a £73m deal but has not played for the club since August 2023 following a public falling out with boss Erik ten Hag.

United had been open to offers for the 23-year-old with no resolution to the stand-off in sight, and he has now completed a temporary move back to Germany.

Speaking to the official Dortmund website, Sancho said: “When I came into the dressing room today, felt like ‘coming home’. I know the club inside and out, and I have always been very close with fans here and never lost contact with those in charge. Can’t, wait to see team-mates again and to play football with a smile on my face.”

The winger has also delivered a subtle dig towards Manchester United and Erik Ten Hag, claiming he wasn’t always playing with a smile on his face during his two-year stint in Manchester.

Dortmund will contribute around €3.5m (£3m) during his spell in Germany, plus a potential €4m (£3.4m) in add-ons based on their progression in the Champions League, Bundesliga success and appearances.

Sancho’s contract at Old Trafford is up in 2026, with United holding the option to extend for a further year. There is no option to buy as part of this deal to Dortmund.

Before moving to United, Sancho scored 50 goals and registered 64 assists in 137 appearances for Dortmund. That tally included 16 goals and 20 assists in the year before he moved to the Premier League.

Sancho will wear the No 10 shirt on his return to the Bundesliga.
