Former England international Wayne Rooney believes Jadon Sancho would be wise to stay at Borussia Dortmund for now.

The youngster has attracted interest from England after emerging as an important player for BVB following his move from Manchester City in 2017. But Rooney isn't sure a return to England would benefit the winger's career at this point.

"Dortmund are a great club with great fans. They rely on young players," the 33-year-old said in an interview with Bild and added:

"With Sancho, you can see the progress that he has made in the last year. Now he has to ask himself whether he would also get the playing time he gets at Dortmund if he moved to England – or would he just sit on the bench there?

"If he gets the most playing time in Dortmund, he should stay there," Rooney said.

Sancho, 19, has scored 14 goals and made 23 assists in 55 appearances for BVB.
