Phil Foden will be staying at Manchester City.
There have been suggestions that the 18 year old midfielder could be set for a move to the Bundesliga, either on a permanent deal or on loan, but City are set to rebuff any approaches for him.
Pep Guardiola has been criticised in some quarters for not giving Foden more first-team opportunities, especially after the teenager was persuaded to sign a new six year deal in December.
However, City believe such suggestions are unfair and that there is a coherent plan in place to get Foden a regular starting berth at The Etihad, with both David Silva and Ilkay Gundogan about to enter the final years of their contracts.
Foden was named player of the tournament when England won the under-17 World Cup in India two years ago but, unlike his team mate for club and country then, Jadon Sancho, it looks like he will not be heading to Germany.
