Julian Brandt has been heavily linked with a move away from Borussia Dortmund, with Lazio, in particular, said to be interested in acquiring the 25-year-old.

For the time being, however, Borussia Dortmund have no plans of letting Brandt go. Instead, the attacking midfielder will get a fresh start under new BVB coach Marco Rose.

"It makes total sense that Julian can prove himself under the new coach. He's a good guy with incredible potential," Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc told Kicker and added:

"However, I expect him to improve his performances and that he will continuously live up to his potential."

Brandt made a total of 31 Bundesliga appearances last season with three goals and two assists to his name.
