FC Köln sporting director Jörg Jakobs has confirmed that Sebastiaan Bornauw has told the club he is keen on a move to VfL Wolfsburg.
Although the centre-back's contract still runs for another three years, Köln were willing to offer him a new deal with better terms, but the centre-back rejected their proposal.
"We had a conversation. His agent has told us that he wants to move to Wolfsburg," Jakobs told Kicker.
"The conversation was also about a contract extension, but that's not an issue for him at the moment," added the Köln boss.
Köln, however, only want to let the player go if the price is right. According to reports, 'The Billy Goats' have turned down an initial €8 million offer from Wolfsburg
as they are holding out for a fee around €15 million.
Should Köln ultimately fail to reach an agreement with Wolfsburg, Jakobs isn't expecting Bornauw to cause any trouble.
Because although the centre-back has expressed desire to leave, "he respects his contract" with Köln, according to Jakobs.
