(Reuters) - Borussia Dortmund have signed defender Waldemar Anton from VfB Stuttgart, both Bundesliga sides announced on Monday.

The 27-year-old former Stuttgart captain has signed a deal to stay at Signal Iduna Park until 2028 in a transfer German media reported to be worth 22.5 million euros ($24.37 million).

Uzbekistan-born Anton has recently been a part of the German national team, making his debut in March and appearing twice for his country at Euro 2024.

The Champions League runners-up have been looking for a replacement in defence after the departure of veteran Mats Hummels, with Anton being the first signing for new coach Nuri Sahin.
