BERLIN, May 13 (Reuters) - Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund are close to signing Australian goalkeeper Mitchell Langerak from Melbourne Victory, the German club said on Thursday.

The 21-year-old will have to pass medical tests before the deal is completed, the club said.

"It is true there is a basic agreement between the two clubs in place," Dortmund sports director Michael Zorc told reporters.

"He represents a modern way of goalkeeping...and we are interested in developing his skills further," Zorc said.

He is expected to be the number two keeper in the club behind Roman Weidenfeller.
