Erik Durm: Held in high regard by Borussia Dortmund

The talented 21-year-old has broken into Dortmund's first team plans this season, a year after completing a move from Mainz, and made his debut on the opening day of the season in a 4-0 victory over Augsburg.

Big things are expected of the Germany U21 international at a side who reached the final of the 2013 UEFA Champions League.

Dortmund have an abundance of riches at their disposal, but also place plenty of emphasis on the nurturing of young talent.

Dortmund's general manager Michal Zorc told the club's official website: "Erik Durm is a talented young professional.

"He has shown, like others have before, that you can still achieve a first team squad place through good performances in the reserve team matches."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
