Mats Hummels 'staying at Dortmund'

ESPN FC's Raphael Honigstein discusses the likelihood of a Mats Hummels transfer from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester United.

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has insisted defender Mats Hummels will be staying at the club amid rumours linking him with a switch to the Premier League.

Germany international Hummels, 25 -- a key figure as Joachim Low's side won the World Cup in Brazil -- has been at Dortmund since 2008 and is under contract until 2017.

Reports in the UK media have linked him with both Manchester United and Arsenal, but Klopp, speaking after his side's 4-0 friendly defeat at Liverpool on Sunday, said he would not be going anywhere.

The Guardian quoted him as saying simply: "He is staying with us."

Klopp said Hummels had been named as club captain for the new season, with sought-after Marco Reus and keeper Roman Weidenfeller standing in as deputies.

Speaking to reporters ahead of Wednesday's Supercup match against Bayern Munich, Klopp said: "When I broke the news to the team, I told them that it's not because they are frequently linked with other clubs but despite those links.

"One thing has nothing to do with the other. But should this somehow lead to it [the players staying beyond 2015], that wouldn't be so bad.

"That they keep getting linked to other clubs, and moreover with laughable transfer fees attached to their names, had nothing to do with it."

He said Reus had "made a huge step forward and become a leader" and added: "He has proven several times that he wants to take on more responsibility in the team."
