United have been strongly linked with the 25-year-old Germany centre-back, and the speculation ramped up following Thomas Vermaelen's decision to join Barcelona.

But having confirmed Hummels would be succeeding Sebastian Kehl as Dortmund's new skipper, Klopp insisted that Hummels would not be moving.

"He is going nowhere," said the Dortmund chief.

"He is staying with us."

Hummels initally joined Dortmund from Bayern Munich on loan in January 2008, with the deal made permanent a little over 12 months later.

He won back-to-back Bundesliga titles with the Westphalia club in 2011 and 2012, and was named in FIFA's World Cup All-Star team after helping Germany to victory in Brazil last month.

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
