Borussia Moenchengladbach confirmed on Monday that their German goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who has been linked to Barcelona, will join a foreign club at the end of the season.


Ter Stegen, who has won three caps for Germany, has a Gladbach contract until 2015, but has told Borussia he wants to leave in June.


He has long been linked to Barcelona, whose goalkeeper Victor Valdes stands down at the end of the season after more than a decade.


Gladbach's director of sport Max Eberl revealed they had agreed terms with Ter Stegen's new club -- whom he did not name -- but confirmed it is based abroad.


The club are hoping to get a double-digit figure in the millions of euros for Ter Stegen and on Monday announced Swiss shot-stopper Yann Sommer as his replacement.


"After Marc-Andre ter Stegen informed us that he definitely wants to leave at end of season, we have reached an agreement with his new club on the transfer arrangements," said Eberl. "He will move abroad, that's now for sure.


"His successor in goal for Borussia will be Yann Sommer.


"He is an excellent goalkeeper who has already gained a lot of international experience and we are delighted that he has chosen us."


The 25-year-old Sommer joins from Swiss champions FC Basel and has signed a four-year deal, with the transfer deal reported to be around nine million euros.


"Everything is a little larger than in Switzerland," said Sommer, who will link up with Gladbach's Swiss coach Lucien Favre.


"Borussia is a traditional club and when you have the chance to play for them, you take it.


"The conversation with those in charge convinced me."

Swiss international goalkeeper Yann Sommer will leave Swiss champions FC Basel for German top flight side Moenchengladbach at the end of the season, his current club confirmed on Monday.


Sommer, 25, joined Basel as a 14-year-old, winning the Swiss title three times and the Swiss Cup once, and could add another double trophy haul this season before joining the Bundesliga.


Sommer will team up with another Swiss international, midfielder Granit Xhawa, at Moenchengladbach.

Barcelona have agreed to sign Borussia Mönchengladbach's goalkeeper, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, for a deal that is believed to be in the region of  $12.4--16.6  million  plus two friendly games.

Due to Victor Valdes' previous announcement that this season will be his last at the Nou Camp, Barcelona have been searching for a new shot stopper. It seems that the 21-year old German international has fit the bill to replace Valdes under the Catalan arch. The deal is believed to extend until the summer of 2019.

Borussia Mönchengladbach was likely forced to cash in on their promising young keeper due to his announcement that he had no intention of signing an extension to his contract until 2015. Which would leave the Borussia side in danger of losing it's player on a Bosman.

Ter Stegen emerged from the Mönchengladbach youth squad and has made well over 100 appearances for the club since breaking into the first team during the 2010-2011 Bundesliga Season, he also has several youth caps in addition to 3 senior appearances for the German national team.

Sources say Barcelona officials will not make the news official until La Liga's Crown has been mathematically decided, or current keeper, Victor Valdes makes his next destination official. Valdes has not given any hints as to what goal he will guard next, but AS Monaco is sounding like the likeliest of destinations.
