Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has this evening moved to shut down speculation that Jadon Sancho could depart the club next month.
Sancho stars again
Lucien Favre’s men welcomed Fortuna Dusseldorf to the Westfalenstadion earlier today, for their latest Bundesliga outing.
Dortmund headed into proceedings amid a less-than-impressive spell of form of late, having managed just 1 win from their last 4 fixtures across all competitions.
This victory, though, came last time out, when BVB put Hertha Berlin to the sword by 2 goals to 1.
And, when all was said and done this afternoon, Dortmund made it two wins from two, in comprehensive fashion.
Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho proved the stars of the show, each bagging two goals and an assist.
Thorgan Hazard, brother of Real Madrid star Eden, was also on target.

‘Continuing to plan with him’
Sancho’s contribution versus Fortuna took the English international’s tally to an impressive 5 goals and 2 assists across his last 4 appearances in Dortmund’s colours.
This, though, comes amid heavy recent speculation that Sancho has become unsettled in Germany, and is eyeing a January transfer:
From a very good source in Germany:
Klopp and Liverpool favorite to get Dortmund-player Sancho.
Sancho wants to leave the club already in January

If the latest word coming out of Dortmund is anything to go by, though, then Sancho will be going absolutely nowhere, in January at least.
Speaking to the media earlier today, BVB sporting director Michael Zorc shut down the possibility of his side’s crown jewel departing next month:
‘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 (in January).’
‘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.’
