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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.
