Dortmund rubbish Jadon Sancho to Liverpool rumours. Sebastian Kehl, the head of Borussia Dortmund’s licensed player division, has no time for rumours that see Sancho leaving the club this year.
Sancho to Liverpool, blared the transfer market rumour mills. But, according to club official Sebastian Kehl, the player is not expected to leave Borussia Dortmund in the close season, pouring cold water on claims the youngster was returning to England.
Despite reported interest from elsewhere, Kehl, who heads up Dortmund’s licensed player division, does not envision Sancho departing Signal Iduna Park this year.
“We expect Jadon to play with us next season,” he told Sky.
Asked about reports that Liverpool were leading the race to sign him, he added: “That is not the truth.”
Achraf Hakimi has been another standout performer for BVB this season but his loan from Real Madrid is due to end at the conclusion of the campaign.
Dortmund are hopeful of extending his stay but Kehl suggested it will be some time until there is a potential agreement.
He said: “It’s in his contract that he will return to Real Madrid at the end of the season if they want him. We have to be patient.”
