Reus dismisses Dortmund exit talk

The Germany international stresses he is keen to stay at Signal Iduna Park and believes his side can reach the Champions League final again in 2013-14.
Marco Reus has insisted that he has no intention of leaving Borussia Dortmund as he is happy with life at the Bundesliga giant.

The Germany international joined Dortmund from Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer of 2012 and immediately became a key player at BVB, reportedly attracting the interest of the likes of Manchester City and Barcelona in the process. Nevertheless, the 24-year-old intends to respect his contract with Dortmund, which runs until June 2017.

"BVB have absolutely no reason to worry about me leaving the club. I am feeling very well at Dortmund," Reus told Bild.

The versatile attacker then went on to discuss Dortmund's Champions League chances and believes the club can make it to the final again this season.

"I don't think making the final last season was a sensation. We simply played our own game and our opponents couldn't cope with it," Reus said. "We are well prepared for the new season and are brimming with confidence. We also gained experience, so why wouldn't we be able to make it to the final again?"

Dortmund will open the Bundesliga season against Augsburg on Saturday.
