Borussia Dortmund have confirmed midfielder Ilkay Gundogan will not extend his current contract, which is due to expire at the end of next season.

The Germany international has reportedly been the subject of interest from Premier League side Manchester United as he nears the end of his existing deal.

Outgoing Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp played down speculation over the former Nuremberg man’s future earlier this month.

However, the club confirmed in a statement on Thursday that Gundogan would not remain at Signal Iduna Park past the 2015-16 campaign.

The 24-year-old endured a difficult start to the campaign as he sat out the early months due to a back injury that also saw him miss the World Cup in Brazil.

However, his return to Dortmund’s line-up has coincided with an upturn in fortunes for Klopp’s men.

The midfielder’s impending departure points to a change in direction for the eight-time German champions, who will see Klopp leave at the end of the season.

Former Mainz boss Thomas Tuchel will replace the Dortmund boss for the start of next term and he could be without Gundogan for the start of his tenure, with United rumoured to be circling.
