Borussia Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke has stressed that the club have no intention of selling Neven Subotic.
Dortmund have assembled a hugely impressive young side which is about to seal the Bundesliga title and, as such, are having to fend off speculation about most of their team.
Mario Gotze, Shinji Kagawa, Nuri Sahin, Kevin Grosskreutz and Subotic are just a few of their players being linked with moves.
Whilst the likes of Sahin may be allowed to move on, chief executive Watzke insists Subotic will not be one of them after reports in Germany linked him with Tottenham and Liverpool.
"Neven Subotic is not for sale, not for any price," Watzke told Ruhr Nachrichten.
"He is contracted to us until June 2014 and he is an important part of the club's first team as much as for the future of this club."
Asked about a proposed bid of £13million for the player, Watzke said: "This is simply ridiculous."
