VfL Wolfsburg boss Jörg Schmadtke is confident Wout Weghorst will be staying at the club until the end of the season.

But amid the financial crisis created by the coronavirus pandemic, he doesn't want to complete rule out a move for the striker, who has claimed he attracted 'serious' interest from Tottenham during the summer transfer window.

"He'll still be here in the winter," Schmadtke told Kicker before admitting:

"But if we get an offer where profitability exceeds everything, we'll have to think about it."

Weghorst's contract with Wolfsburg expires in 2023. The 28-year-old Dutch striker has scored three goals in eight games in all competitions this season.
