Borussia Dortmund striker Sebastian Haller has been diagnosed with a testicular tumour.

A statement from the German club on Monday revealed the player’s illness after feeling unwell during their pre-season training camp in Switzerland.

A tumour was discovered on the 28-year-old’s testicles and he returned home to Dortmund, where he will undergo specialist treatment in the coming days.

Borussia sporting director Sebastian Kehl told the club website: “This news today came as a shock to Sebastien Haller and to all of us.

“The entire BVB family wishes Sebastien a full recovery as soon as possible and that we can hug him again soon. We will do everything in our power to ensure that he receives the best possible treatment.”

Ivory Coast international Haller began his career with Auxerre and was signed by West Ham in a £45million deal from Eintracth Frankfurt in 2019.

After 18 months in east London, he joined Ajax and earlier this month signed for Dortmund in a deal worth £28m.
