Amidst the ongoing transfer saga, Jadon Sancho appears to be giving more hints on his future after saying he is happy at Dortmund right now.

After a long-lasting transfer saga for months, Borussia Dortmund cut the plug and outlined their intention to keep Sancho next season.

Manchester United already had the 20-year-old as their priority target and that decision from the Bundesliga side put a dent in their transfer plans.

Despite Borussia Dortmund’s latest stance, some reports still claim Manchester United will still try to sign Sancho this summer.

But latest comments from the English forward all but indicates he is happy in his current surroundings.

Sancho played 45 minutes in Wednesday’s friendly against Rheindorf Altach, with Dortmund emerging 6-0 winners over the Austrian side. 

It was an opportunity for the club to field a number of youngsters including new signing Jude Bellingham.

Speaking after the game, Sancho sent out a message United fans would not like to hear at the moment.

“I love playing with this lot,” he told BVB-TV. “It is a special bunch. We’ve got some special young players coming up. I am really happy to share the pitch with them and guide them.

“I was once in their shoes, playing with the seniors. I am happy for them.”

Despite being only 20, Sancho is already happy to be taking something of a leadership role at the club.

“I joined [Dortmund] when I was 17,” he added.

“Some of the lads are the same age. I’ve been there and done that. I can guide them in what’s good and what isn’t. I can hopefully motivate them as well.”

Bellingham recently paid tribute to Sancho for how he has helped him settle to life at the club.
