The 24-year-old, who is fighting to shake off an ankle injury to allow him to face his former club Bayern Munich at Wembley, has been linked with a move to Barcelona and even back to Bayern in the summer.

However, he has pledged his future to Dortmund by telling Kicker magazine that he will still be wearing a yellow and black shirt next season.

"I've not had any contact with Barcelona or any other club," he said. "I don't think it's my duty to dismiss rumours which other people invent.

"If there was to be any truth in them, I would say so. If I say that there is nothing behind the speculation, then people should believe me."

When asked whether Saturday will be his last game for Dortmund, Hummels replied: "Of course not."

Hummels joined Dortmund from Bayern in 2008 after making just a single appearance for the Bavarians, in the 5-2 win over Mainz on the final day of the 2006/07 season.

His initial loan spell with the Westphalians was made permanent in 2009 and he has been an almost ever-present since.

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
