DORTMUND, Germany (AP) — Borussia Dortmund has signed striker Tim Vayrynen from Finnish first division side FC Honka.

The Bundesliga club says on its website that the 20-year-old Vayrynen is getting a contract to 2016, and that he will play initially with its under-23 side in Germany's third division.

Vayrynen scored 17 goals in 24 appearances to become the Finnish league's top scorer last season, helping FC Honka to a runner-up finish.

Dortmund reserve team coach David Wagner says "he is a huge talent with really great potential."

Vayrynen made his senior international debut in a 4-2 loss to Mexico last October.

Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski is joining Bundesliga rival Bayern Munich at the end of the season.
