Following his impressive start to life in the Bundesliga, Paco Alcacer's loan move from Barca to Dortmund has now been made permanent.

Dortmund have exercised the €23 million (R362 million) purchase option on the striker, who has netted nine goals in eight matches across all competitions this term so far.

The Spaniard revealed he is thrilled with the decision to make the move permanent via a statement from the club.

"I'm very happy to be in Dortmund, at BVB and part of this wonderful team. Borussia Dortmund was and remains totally the right decision for me. I'll give it everything to repay the trust placed in me with performances and goals!" he said.

Dortmund's sporting director Michael Zorc was equally thrilled about the permanent stay of the striker.

"We've informed Barcelona today that we will exercise the purchase option. Paco is wholeheartedly committed to us, has integrated quickly and has become a core component of our squad," Zorc said.

"He's a real goalscorer who has great footballing ability and has already decided some important games for us. We're looking forward to lots more goals and assists from Paco in the coming years."
