Cape Town - Borussia Dortmund midfielder Nuri Sahin has spoken fondly of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, but says he has no intention of leaving his current employers.

The Turkey international, currently at Euro 2016, is in his second spell at Dortmund following a three-year stay with Real Madrid.

It was while at Los Blancos that he was loaned to the Reds, playing 12 matches for the Premier League club.

There has been speculation claiming that the 27-year-old is looking for a move away from Dortmund, with Anfield one of his possible destinations.

But he flatly denies wanting to leave BVB, telling Sport360: "I am very happy at Dortmund. Yesterday it was Galatasaray, tomorrow it is Fiorentina - it's normal of course in football to hear these things but I am very happy at Dortmund.

"I'm happy that I am healthy again. I will finish the Euros, and then my focus will be fully on Dortmund. I'm fit and I hope I can have a good preseason. Am I impressed (with Klopp)? Yes, but I am certainly not surprised."
