Marcel Halstenberg is expected to leave RB Leipzig on a free transfer at the end of the season, at which point his contract expires.


According to Kicker, RB Leipzig no longer want to extend the contract of the 29-year-old, who has been out injured for three months.

Halstenberg turned down a new deal in the spring and went on to flirt with a transfer to Borussia Dortmund.

Despite intensive talks between the parties, however, 'Die Schwarzgelben' ultimately didn't make an offer for the 29-year-old German international.

It remains to be seen whether Dortmund remain interested. At this point, the most important thing for Halstenberg is to get back to full fitness.
