Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has confirmed that Jadon Sancho will not be leaving the club this summer.

The 20-year-old has been touted for a move to Manchester United, but Zorc has now made it clear once and for all that the youngster will be staying at BVB for the 2020/21 season.

"We plan on having Jadon Sancho in our team this season, the decision is final. I think that answers all our questions," Zorc told reporters on Monday.

Zorc then went on to reveal that the club extended Sancho's contract by a further year last summer.

"Last summer, we adjusted Jadon's salary to match the development of his performances. So in context, we had already extended his contract until 2023 back then," he said.

Sancho has made a total of 99 appearances for Dortmund with 34 goals and 43 assists to his name.
