Jadon Sancho 'very happy' at Borussia Dortmund, says chief executive

England winger Jadon Sancho is "very happy" at Borussia Dortmund, says the German club's chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke.
The 19-year-old has scored 14 goals and assisted another 14 this season, and has been linked to a number of Premier League clubs.
"I think he has the feeling that the club does have a good future," Watzke told BBC Sport.
"In my opinion, I don't think he wants to leave."
Sancho was 17 when he left Manchester City for Dortmund on the last day of the 2017 summer transfer window, costing the Bundesliga side about £10m.
He scored 13 goals last season, as well as making his England debut in the Nations League game away to Croatia in October 2018.
With speculation now surrounding the player's future, Watzke admitted it is "not clear what will happen".
"We have a very confidential relationship between us and him and his agents," he added. "We will discuss it."
Watzke also asserted that Dortmund - who are third in the German top flight - will not be swayed by the size of any offer they may receive for Sancho, who began his career at Watford.
"It's not a question of money," said Watzke. "For us, it would be the best position if he stays at Borussia Dortmund.
"We have enough money. We want to have titles. I think this team has a lot more potential with Jadon than without Jadon."
Let the guy develop at his own pace.
He's a star at Dortmund and plays every game.
Stay away from the English media etc.
From a financial perspective, he'd be foolish not to move while his stock it sky high...
However, as a fan of the player, I think he should stay at Dortmund for at least another year before going anywhere. A really good club with a promising young squad and great youth development, it would be a shame to not see what they can do.
Just because he’s played more games at nineteen than Foden doesn’t mean his career is better or will be better.
Leave that judgement to when they’re both 35. They’re both developing in different ways -that’s all. And don’t forget that Foden has just won a trophy.
As for Sancho leaving Dortmund. If it ain’t broken don’t fix it....
And he is surrounded by an increasingly great squad - Witsel, Can, Haaland and Reus.
Stay where you are Jadon. Coming back to the EPL is a step down unless money is your God?
For purely selfish reasons he should stay, it would be good for our England side.
