Jurgen Klopp has today responded to rumours linking Mats Hummels with a move away from Borussia Dortmund. The defender has previously conceded that he is thinking about his future and Klopp has today confirmed the club has replacements lined up.

He told me that he thinks about his future. That’s why I don’t need to think about it. We are always on the lookout. We want to keep Mats and that is beyond question, but how that works out, I don’t know. There’s always a list of players who would be interesting in the event that you need them.

Dortmund lost 3-1 against Mönchengladbach today and are now 10th in the table.
