Borussia Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl has stressed that midfielder Jude Bellingham will not be leaving the German club anytime soon, amid continued interest from the Premier League.

The England international, who scored a sensational solo goal in Dortmund's 3-1 win over Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday, joined the Bundesliga giants from Birmingham City in July 2020 and has gone from strength-to-strength since following in the footsteps of Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho and moving to Germany.

The midfielder, despite only being 18, has been outstanding for Dortmund in recent months, sparking interest from the likes of Liverpool and United.

Bellingham did visit United's Carrington training ground before joining Dortmund last year and met with Sir Alex Ferguson. However, he decided that a switch to Germany would help him take his development to the next level.

Having scored seven goals and claimed 11 assists since joining the club, as well as continuing to boss the midfield, the England youngster, only naturally, is wanted back in his homeland.

However, Dortmund chief Kehl has warned that an exit from the Westfalenstadion is not likely anytime soon.

"He is a Borussia Dortmund player and he will remain a Borussia Dortmund player," Kehl told German media outlet SPORT1, responding to questions about Liverpool's reported interest in the youngster.

"There’s a lot of interest around Jude Bellingham, not only Liverpool. But there is no bottom line and no exit clause. He is loved here, he enjoys that. There are no signs he could leave Borussia Dortmund soon.

"It’s good that there are rumours about our players, it shows that we are doing something right. We can offer a lot at Borussia Dortmund. We want to win titles, but we have to keep our players to do that."

Chelsea and Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Bellingham, as are United, whose interest in his signature was made crystal clear more than a year ago.

The midfielder, who will be hoping to soon become a mainstay in Gareth Southgate's England squad, is tipped to get better and better, meaning his valuation will only increase.
