Burton Albion have signed striker Timmy Thiele from the reserve team of Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.

The 23-year-old German has joined last season's League Two champions from Borussia Dortmund II on a one-year contract.

Boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink said: "He is very hungry and can only get better.

"It works a little bit different in Germany. Borussia Dortmund is in a way two different teams and it's a good standard of football he's used to. "
