The youngster will be named among the club’s B-list – reserved for young, homegrown talent – once he turns 16 on 20 November 2020.

Youssoufa Moukoko will be included in Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League squad, the club has confirmed. 

“Yes, it’s true. We will register Youssoufa for the Champions League via the B-list,” Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc told German daily Bild.

Moukoko is the latest of many young stars coming through at the club’s famous academy and has been dubbed to be the next star.

Should Moukoko feature when Dortmund face Club Brugge on 24 November, he will become the youngest player in Champions League history.

The record is currently held by Celestine Babayaro when he started for Anderlecht against Steaua Bucharest in the 1994/95 group stage, aged 16 years and 87 days.
