Borussia Dortmund are adamant on keeping hold of star player Shinji Kagawa despite reported interest from Premier League giants Manchester United.

The Japanese international has set the league alight this season with a string of fine performances and his club Dortmund are focused on persuading the highly-rated 21-year-old to stay in Germany.

Dortmund manager Michael Zorc has insisted that Dortmund are in no hurry to sell their star asset and he is more focused on tying Kagawa to a longer contract.

“Shinji is contracted to our club on a deal until June 2013,” he said. “We have the desire to strike a long-term deal with Shinji and we are not going to panic just because Manchester United have reportedly expressed an interest.

“We are going to meet with his agent very soon and we will sit down and negotiate a contract extension.”

Zorc added: “Shinji has excellent pace, great technique and he scores regularly. To have scored eight goals and assisted one so far this season is a great return.”
