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

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."
