Germany winger Odonkor joins Real Betis

BERLIN, Aug 29 (Reuters) - Germany's World Cup winger David Odonkor has left Borussia Dortmund for Real Betis in a deal worth €6 million, the Bundesliga club announced on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old signed a five-year contract with the Spanish team after passing a medical on Monday evening.

Odonkor, who made his Bundesliga debut in 2002, was a surprise inclusion in Juergen Klinsmann's squad for this year's World Cup.

He had still to make his full international debut when he received the call but wasted little time making a name for himself, coming off the bench in Germany's second game to set up a last-gasp winner for Oliver Neuville against Poland.

Odonkor has won six caps, all as a substitute.

He is lightning fast and was once timed at 10.7 seconds over 100 metres at Dortmund.

Odonkor will replace Spain winger Joaquin, who left Betis for Valencia for €25 million on Monday.
