Jadon Sancho Happy at Borussia Dortmund Amid PSG Transfer Rumours

Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho has said he is "not wasting thoughts" on rumours linking him with a move away from the club at the moment.

Sancho has emerged as one of European football's hottest prospects this season, starring for a Dortmund side that sit top of the Bundesliga. Unsurprisingly, he's been linked with some huge clubs, and according to Sky Sports, French giants Paris Saint-Germain are "very interested" in the 18-year-old.

"I'm not wasting any thoughts on a change," he said. "I owe a lot to BVB and I have a lot in mind with this team. I'm happy here and did not sign for so long for nothing."

In addition to PSG, it has been reported by Stuart Brennan of the Manchester Evening News that Manchester City—Sancho's former club—have first refusal on any offer made for the tyro, potentially giving them an advantage should he leave Dortmund in the future.

Sancho doesn't appear to be keen on making a move elsewhere for a while yet, though. Per Burton, the England international signed a new contract with Dortmund in October that runs until 2022.

Further commitment to Dortmund is not a shock when you consider how Sancho's career has taken off since he joined the club.

Per Scouted Football, he's not the only English player who has benefitted from making a move to Germany's top flight:

While he isn't yet a regular starter at BVB, he's been used brilliantly by manager Lucien Favre in the early weeks of the campaign.

When Sancho is drafted into the team from the bench, he can make such an impact. Whether on the right or left flank, the youngster is happy to run at defenders, get deliveries into the box and even work back for the team.

What has set Sancho apart so far this term is his ability to get into dangerous positions. He's often found himself in space at the far post, where he can score or lay on a chance for a team-mate to gobble up.

It is certainly early to be talking about a lucrative move, especially given Sancho is a young man and his career is in an embryonic stage.

At 18, he may be a key player in a table-topping side and a senior England international, but he also has a lot to learn about the game. For now, staying at Dortmund and getting regular minutes appears the smartest way for Sancho to continue that learning curve.
