Bayer Leverkusen striker Stefan Kiessling quells suggestions that he will join Borussia Dortmund in the summer.

Bayer Leverkusen striker Stefan Kiessling has played down suggestions that he will join Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.

It had been suggested that the 29-year-old would replace Robert Lewandowski, who looks certain to leave the Champions League finalists at the end of the season.

However, Kiessling told Bild: "I am not responsible for gossip rumours. I have been in touch with nobody. I am under contract with Bayer Leverkusen until June 2015.

"Thus far I have not had any conversation with someone from the club, and I feel the club should come to me.

"I am not under pressure, I like being at Bayer Leverkusen and everybody knows that. I could definitely imagine signing a new deal, of course."

Kiessling has scored 24 goals for Leverkusen this season.
