Leonardo Bittencourt: Had been hoping to see more game time this season

The 19-year-old midfielder joined Dortmund last summer on a four-year contract from Energie Cottbus.

He was snapped up with one eye on the future, but the youngster was hoping to see plenty of first-team football during his debut campaign.

That has not been the case, with a lack of game time sparking transfer speculation.

Bittencourt, though, insists that he has offered no indication that he is looking to move on, with there a desire on his part to show that he has what it takes to be successful at a top Bundesliga club.

He told BILD: "My biggest ambition is to be a starter for Borussia Dortmund. I would not have joined the club otherwise.

"Of course I would like to play more and get regular action from the start, but I am under contract at Borussia Dortmund.

"I am not looking to consider any others. That would be work for my agent."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
