Borussia Dortmund have signed Hoffenheim's highly-rated right-back Jeremy Toljan, who had been linked with a move to Tottenham.
The 23-year-old, a member of Germany's victorious European Under-21 Championship team this summer, has signed a five-year contract.
"He is a player with huge potential," Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said on the club's website.
"Jeremy can slot in on both the left and right of defence. He was one of the cornerstones of the side that secured the title for Germany at the U21 European Championship this summer."
Spurs were linked with Toljan following Kyle Walker's move to Manchester City but Sky sources understand they have agreed a deal to sign Serge Aurier from Paris Saint-Germain subject to a work permit.
Dortmund's 19-year-old defender Felix Passlack has joined Hoffenheim on a two-year loan deal.
Passlack has also signed a contract extension with Dortmund until 2021.
Zorc added: "We hope he gets as much playing time as possible in Hoffenheim and believe he will be in good hands with their coach Julian Nagelsmann."
