Announced on the official Dortmund Twitter account, the centre back has been given the go ahead to return home, after what has been a traumatic week for the Spaniard.

​​The suspected terrorist attack left two people injured - Bartra and a nearby police officer. Though there have now been three instances of parties claiming responsibility for the explosion, the German authorities are yet to release an official statement regarding who is to blame, but one suspect has been arrested.
