Former Manchester City starlet Jadon Sancho is happy that he took the chance to join Borussia Dortmund, where his career has blossomed in recent times.

The 18-year-old forward opted to head to the Bundesliga outfit in August 2017 and has since become a regular for a BVB side who are in pole position to win the German league title this season.

It was crazy how many clubs wanted me...but I always felt Dortmund was right for me.

Sancho's form, which has seen him score six times in 19 league appearances so far this term, has also been good enough to see him earn a senior England call-up, with the talented youngster having won three caps to date.

He told FourFourTwo: "Why Dortmund? It speaks for itself: youngsters get opportunities.

"You've got to thank Dortmund, because it's unheard of for a team that gets 80,000 fans at every home game to put so much faith in youngsters.

"It was crazy how many clubs wanted me - it shows how well you're doing - but I always felt Dortmund was right for me."

"A few people weren't sure when I first told them about Dortmund, but I felt this was the best journey for me. I like trying new things, so it didn't really faze me and look at how it's worked out now."

Dortmund are available at 16/1 to be crowned Bundesliga champions this season, while they are 12121/1 to lift the DFB-Pokal.

BVB are also through to the last-16 of the Champions League, where they will take on Tottenham Hotspur.
