Kiessling is being linked as a possible replacement for Poland international Robert Lewandowski - who is being tipped to leave the Westfalenstadion at the end of the season.
Kiessling told Deutsche Presseagentur: "I do not know a thing about it, really, and I am surprised to see myself linked (to Borussia Dortmund).
"This is nothing I am thinking about. Of course, I am honoured if my name is mentioned in such a respect. This should however not cause any unrest.
"I am fully focussed on Bayer Leverkusen, we have important matches ahead of us. I am enjoying my contract with Bayer Leverkusen."
Another player who remains calm about his future is Dortmund skipper Sebastian Kehl - who is out of contract in the summer.
"I have a contract that expires this summer," the 33-year-old told Ruhr Nachrichten.
"We have agreed to talk about my future when there is some chance to chat calmly with each other. I am enjoying it at the club. I am able to see myself keep on at Borussia Dortmund."
