BORUSSIA DORTMUND HAVE announced that Germany midfielder Ilkay Gundogan will not renew his contract which expires next year, sparking speculation he will be sold at the end of the season.

The 24-year-old has been linked to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich as well as Premier League giants Manchester United and Arsenal and Dortmund will want to sell him when the season ends next month or risk losing him on a free transfer.

Having penned an extension last year while injured, Gundogan has informed Dortmund he will leave when his contract expires in June 2016 having won two German league titles, the 2012 German Cup and played in the 2013 Champions League final defeat to Bayern.

Gundogan, who has nine caps with Germany, spent more than a year out with a back injury and made his return last September last year having played just a handful of games in the 2013/14 season which saw him miss out on the Mannschaft’s World Cup win in Brazil.
