Belgian back Thomas Meunier is leaving Paris Saint-Germain this summer as a free agent, and it appears that he’s already set on his next destination. France’s RTBF reported on Tuesday that Meunier rejected the offer from Premier League side Tottenham and will head to Bundesliga.

In recent weeks, Meunier attracted the interest of several high-profile clubs from Europe including Inter, Juventus, Tottenham and Atletico Madrid. Tottenham made the most progress, making a strong contract offer, but the 28-year-old reportedly preferred and move to Germany and jumped on the opportunity when Borussia Dortmund came calling.

According to RTBF, Meunier and Dortmund only have several finer details to iron out while the move should be made official in the coming days. According to the agreement, Meunier will be able to stay in France until August, which will allow him to play out the remainder of the UEFA Champions League with PSG.

Thomas Meunier joined PSG in 2016 from Belgian side Club Brugge in a transfer worth around $10 million. Since then, he played 128 games in all competitions while scoring 13 goals. Meunier won nine trophies while in France, including three consecutive Ligue 1 titles.
