Sebastian Kehl rejects retirement talk

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Sebastian Kehl plans to keep playing the end of his current contract, which expires next summer.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Sebastian Kehl has insisted that he has not considered his long-term future, despite being out of contract at the end of this season.

Kehl has been made more than 350 appearances for Dortmund in a 12-year spell, which was extended during the close-season when he penned a one-year extension.

The 33-year-old has declared that he wants to keep playing next season and beyond, even if that means leaving Dortmund.

He told reporters: "I'm not paying attention to this now. I'm aiming to play football even after this season, maybe the situation will be a different one in a few months' time.

"Right now I'm working hard, taking my chances when I'm allowed to play, so, yeah, I'm not behaving in a different manner."

Kehl made his first appearance of the campaign for Jurgen Klopp's side last week, featuring in a 1-0 win over Werder Bremen.
