Borussia Dortmund have a committed young star in the American teen, who says he is going nowhere despite Premier League interest

Christian Pulisic insists he is staying at Borussia Dortmund despite being aware of speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool.

Already an international regular for the United States at the age of 18, Pulisic has made a rapid rise to prominence.

The winger played 29 Bundesliga matches last season, his first full campaign with Dortmund's first-team squad.

Pulisic insisted last month that a move from Dortmund to rivals Bayern Munich – following the trend set by Robert Lewandowski, Mario Gotze and Mats Hummels – was not in his plans.

And following reports linking him with a move to England, Pulisic has again reiterated his commitment to BVB.

"I am very happy in Dortmund.," he told Sport Bild. "I have read about it [Liverpool interest], but what can I say about it? I am fully focused on the start of the new season.

"I want to be very clear, I am not thinking about a transfer. I only signed a new deal until 2020 at the start of the year.

"I established myself at a European top club in Dortmund last season, which was always my dream when I was a little kid."

Pulisic, who can also play as a central attacking midfielder, hopes to make even more of a mark with Dortmund this season, with the club now under new management after Petr Bosz's arrival.
