"The winger, 19, has come up through our Academy system and was a regular for our Under-23s this season as well as starting seven games in our run to the Under-19 UEFA Youth League quarter-finals, scoring twice.


"We wish Keanan all the best for the future."

Borussia officials are delighted to have secured their man and trust him to play in one of the best leagues in Europe despite his lack of senior football experience.
