Kevin Kampl (born 9 October 1990) is a German-born Slovenian footballer who plays as a midfielder for Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga, and for the Slovenia national football team.

Family and early years[edit]

Kampl was born in Solingen, Germany. His parents moved to Germany from Maribor, a city near the Austrian border in northeastern Slovenia.[1] Kampl has dual citizenship and would have been eligible to play for Germany but chose Slovenia early on.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Kampl began his career with Bayer Leverkusen. After some years in the youth team of Bayer Leverkusen II he signed for SpVgg Greuther Fürth.

On 30 August 2010, he signed a one season loan contract with SpVgg Greuther Fürth. Kampl made his first team debut on 29 October 2010 as a late substitute in a 2. Bundesliga tie with Erzgebirge Aue.[2] After only half a season for Greuther Fürth, he returned to Bayer Leverkusen during the 2010–11 winter transfer window.[3] Kampl made his Leverkusen 2010–11 season debut as a second-half substitute in the UEFA Europa League game against Metalist Kharkiv. In the summer of 2011, Kampl transferred to 3. Liga side VfL Osnabrück.[4] After having played a great season for Osnabrück, he joined newly promoted 2. Bundesliga club VfR Aalen for a transfer fee of €250,000. For Aalen however he played only four matches, scoring two goals and assisting another three. This marvelous start drew the attention of well-financed Austrian champion Red Bull Salzburg and they acquired him just before the end of the transfer window by fulfilling his release clause in the amount of €3 million.[5] He was nominated for the best player of the Austrian Bundesliga at the beginning of the 2013–14 season, but had to eventually concede to Philipp Hosiner.

Borussia Dortmund[edit]

On 22 December 2014, it was announced that he would join Borussia Dortmund on a five-year contract for a €12 million fee on 1 January 2015.[6]
