Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has snubbed a potential move to the English Premier League by signing a new contract with the German giants.
The 24-year-old was a target for Arsenal and Manchester United according to reports but opted to sign a new two-year deal with the Bundesliga club.
"The first day of pre-season is over, and it's great fun to work with the coaches and teammates," Gundogan is quoted as saying by Mirror.
"I am glad that we finally have clarity and I can continue playing for Borussia Dortmund."
Dortmund's sporting director Michael Zorc added: "We are pleased that Ilkay will continue to play for Borussia Dortmund.
"I am convinced that he will play a part in Dortmund reaching its sporting goals."
