Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has played down suggestions that Jadon Sancho will be allowed to leave the club during the January transfer window.
The 19-year-old has been strongly linked with Liverpool and Manchester United in recent weeks, while Chelsea are thought to be preparing a club-record move for the England international having had their transfer ban lifted.
However, Zorc has claimed that 'there is not a scenario' where the teenager could be allowed to leave BVB in the middle of the season.
"We're continuing to plan with him. He's a fundamental player for us and I do not see any scenario where he leaves us," Zorc told reporters.
"We have already had some situations with him to talk about, and there have been a lot of interviews in the last few weeks. We are in a good way; when he came off the bench in Barcelona and also in Berlin, he gave us a top performance."
Sancho has scored nine times and registered 10 assists in 20 appearances for Dortmund during the 2019-20 campaign.
The attacker's relationship with his club has broken down in recent weeks, though, and speculation surrounding his future in Germany continues to gather pace.body check tags ::
