With the loan of Achraf, the Spanish club maintains its successful policy of sending players to the Bundesliga, where players from the Real Madrid Castilla (Real Madrid's reserve team) were previously on loan, including Daniel Carvajal (Leverkusen), Omar Mascarell (Eintracht Frankfurt) and Borja Mayoral (Wolfsburg).

Achraf is set to join his new teammates during Dortmund's US tour between July 18 and 26, according to the German club's official web site.
