Manuel Akanji has been linked with a move away from Borussia Dortmund this month, with Olympique Lyon said to be among the clubs interested in the centre-back.

But Dortmund aren't considering letting the 24-year-old go at all, says the club's sporting director, Michael Zorc.

"I don't know what would make us want to let Manuel Akanji go," Zorc told WAZ.

Akanji has made 27 appearances for Dortmund this season.
