Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has clearly stated that the reports linking Jadon Sancho away from the club are utter rubbish and he is going nowhere during the January transfer window.
Given he has been removed from the starting eleven at BVB, while not seeing eye-to-eye with those senior to him, Sancho’s future has been up in the air more than ever since his Man City exit in 2017.
Reports emerged after the game that the 19-year-old had been punished after arriving late for both the pre-match team briefing and training. That is also part of the reason Lucien Favre decided to drop him.
However, Zorc is having none of it. He says recent issues have been dealt with in-house and maybe Gareth Southgate should take note for when two England players decide to trade blows in training next.
Michael Zorc plays down Jadon Sancho Borussia Dortmund exit:
I think Jadon did a good job when he came in. I don’t get the impression that a winter transfer is being planned.” #BVB

Sancho may not leave in January as it’s been long expected that a transfer will happen next summer instead. Barcelona, Liverpool, Manchester United and Real Madrid are all keen to sign him, per David Ornstein of The Athletic.
