January 19, (THEWILL) – Borussia Monchengladbach have moved quickly to fill the void left by Yann Sommer’s departure, announcing the signing of Jonas Omlin, from Montpellier.
As THEWILL reported, Sommer, who had been with Gladbach for over eight years, recently joined Bayern Munich for a reported fee of €8 million. Gladbach swiftly turned to fellow Switzerland international, Omlin, who made 74 appearances for Montpellier after joining from Basel in August 2020.
The 29-year-old, who earned the most recent of his four Swiss caps last June, has signed a deal at Borussia Park that runs through until July 2025.
Sporting Director, Roland Virkus, expressed confidence in the club’s new signing, saying “We believe we have found a very good solution by signing Jonas Omlin. He is a very reliable goalkeeper, who exudes confidence, is strong on his line and is good with the ball at his feet.”
Omlin appeared in 14 of Montpellier’s 19 games this season, keeping three clean sheets. He will now join his new club in their push for success in the Bundesliga.
