Want-away right-back Oliver Kirch has told the Dortmund management that he wants to stay, after his transfer request back in January. The 30 year-old has been subject to three ~£500k bids from Bundesliga clubs recently, which BVB reportedly accepted.

With the club set to welcome right-back Andreas Beck from Hoffenheim when the transfer window opens next week, and having promoted Julian Koch and Lasse Sobiech to the senior squad recently, it’s believed that Kirch’s heel-turn request has been rejected as the club trims excess from the wage bill.

Kirch has one year left on his BVB deal, at £13k p/w.

Fixtures:

The club has cancelled the 13 July senior friendly against Arminia Bielefeld II.


Boardroom:

With Dortmund II not competing in 3.Liga next season, manager GS has met with chairman Reinhard Rauball to request a feeder club. Despite a number of under-23 friendlies arranged, GS would prefer his youngsters play competitive football where possible.  Rauball hopes to have a list of suitable clubs within a month.


Academy:

Head of Youth Development Volker Kersting has reported that teenagers Osman Varol and Karl-Heinz Horn have both rejected proposed one-year extensions to their current youth contracts. No further action has been taken at this time.
