Borussia Dortmund sports director Sebastian Kehl has reaffirmed that Manchester United target Jadon Sancho will not be sold during the current transfer window.
The England international's future has been the talk of the summer amid speculation surrounding a potential move to United, although Kehl's colleague Michael Zorc previously insisted that Sancho would be staying put at the Westfalenstadion.
The Red Devils have still been attempting to negotiate a deal, but United's hopes of landing the former Manchester City youngster have dwindled even further following a statement released by Kehl.
The statement read: "He is our player - and he will stay. It was an important statement from the club, because we have a certain responsibility."
The Red Devils are thought to have identified a number of alternatives to Sancho, who already has one assist to his name in the new Bundesliga campaign as Dortmund ran out 3-0 winners against Borussia Monchengladbach at the weekend.
