General manager Thomas Eichin says that reported Stoke City and Southampton target Aaron Hunt will not be leaving Werder Bremen.

Werder Bremen's general manager Thomas Eichin has insisted that Aaron Hunt will not be sold this month.

The 27-year-old, who will become a free agent during the summer, has been linked with Premier League outfits Southampton and Stoke City.

However, Eichin has maintained that the attacker will remain with the club, who are keen for him to extend his contract at the Weserstadion.

"Aaron Hunt is not on the move. It's a fact that Aaron Hunt will definitely see out the season with our club. He is a key player we would like to keep on with beyond the end of the season," he told Kicker-Sportmagazin.

Hunt has turned out for the German national side on three occasions.
