Jadon Sancho has been heavily linked with a move away from Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.


But Dortmund captain Marco Reus believes the youngster would be wise to spend at least one more season at Signal Iduna Park.

"Jadon is an outstanding player and will definitely remain in demand by many clubs. That is a fact. He's now playing at an even higher level than last year and would be extremely valuable in achieving our goals," Reus said in an interview with Sport Bild.

"I would advise him to stay at BVB for another year, maybe two. From my point of view, there is no better place for him at the moment. Afterwards, he can take the really big step as an even more complete player, having developed further in peace here as a regular starter," Reus continued and added:

"He would have to find his place at a new club, which isn't always easy for a 20-year-old. Just how interesting do you think Jadon will be for the biggest clubs if he spends one, two or three years more here to develop further?"

Sancho has scored 17 goals and made 19 assists in 35 games for Dortmund this season. His contract with BVB runs until 2022.
