Julian Schieber: Could be set for an exit from Borussia Dortmund

The 25-year-old, who joined from Stuttgart in 2012, is yet to truly establish himself at the Westfaledstadion and West Ham, Wigan and Celtic have been among those linked with a move.

Fellow Bundesliga outfit 1899 Hoffenheim have also been reported to be tracking the former Germany Under-21 international, who failed to score in his 12 league appearances last season.

Schieber has another two years remaining on his current contract with Dortmund, but Zorc says that they would be prepared to sell if the striker is looking to leave.

"We have been talking to Julian Schieber and his agent in the last week," he told kicker-Sportmagazin.

"He had been out to have his Borussia Dortmund breakthrough within his first two years at the club.

"If he is out for a transfer after these first two years at our club, we would certainly be considering that. Of course."

Meanwhile, Zorc has confirmed some transfer business for Dortmund as 20-year-old striker Marvin Ducksch has joined newly-promoted Paderborn on a season-long loan.

Zorc said: "We have agreed a loan deal with SC Paderborn to ensure Marvin Ducksch has the chance of regular first-team practice in the Bundesliga.

"This is going to help him in his development as a player."

W

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
