MUNICH (Reuters) - Midfielder Mario Gotze has rejoined his boyhood club Borussia Dortmund on a four-year deal from Bayern Munich, the Ruhr valley club said on their website on Thursday (July 21).

Gotze, 24, won two Bundesliga titles with Dortmund before joining Bayern in 2013 but failed to nail down a starting place in three seasons under coach Pep Guardiola, who has since joined Premier League side Manchester City.
