Gotze to reject Premier League advances

It’s been a busy weekend in the Football Tavern Transfer and before the bar closes for the evening, Premier League target Mario Gotze has told Goal.com he is happy to stay at Borussia Dormund.

The 20-year-old midfielder has caught the eye of a number of Premier League sides with his excellent performances for the Bundesliga champions and was thought to be looking to move to England soon.

However he yesterday expressed his willingness to remain in Germany and rejected any talk of him leaving the club.

Speaking to German paper Bild, Gotze declared that he wants to continue with life in Germany.

“Quite honestly, I see no reason for me to deal with a change,” the young Germany international replied when asked if he would consider a move to Bayern Munich.

“Since I came into the Dortmund youth set-up, I’ve never really dealt with it. I have everything I need and I even want to build a house in Dortmund, because I feel so comfortable in the city.”

Germany legend Franz Beckenbauer recently claimed that the partnership the youngster had established with Marco Reus was one of the best in the world and Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is one of his many admirers.

Gotze’s side Borussia Dortmund won their Champions League group, overcoming favourites Real Madrid and Jurgen Klopp’s side are being viewed by many as potential dark horses in Europe’s stellar competition.
