Borussia Dortmund talent Jadon Sancho has told the London Evening Standard that he doesn't know how to react to rumours of a £100million valuation and interest from the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

Sancho, 18, was a top young talent with Watford and Manchester City, particularly with the latter, but chose to leave the club last summer in a surprise move.

Despite interest from other English clubs, Sancho headed to Borussia Dortmund in 2017, and showed real promise last season before really excelling in the early stages of this term.

 

With six assists already this term, Sancho is currently the assist king of the Bundesliga, and his form has handed him a first call-up to the England senior squad.

The teenager could feature against Spain or Croatia, and speculation earlier this week suggested that English clubs are now looking to lure him home.

The Mirror claim that Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are particularly keen on Sancho, but Dortmund think Sancho may be worth around £100million, using their sale of winger Ousmane Dembele to Barcelona as a guide.

Sancho was on press duty for England today, and was unsurprisingly asked about those rumours, which have left him absolutely dumbfounded.

Sancho has told the London Evening Standard that the rumours of a £100million valuation are 'mad', but did leave the door open to a return to England at some point, even if he is happy at Signal Iduna Park right now.

"That's mad! Woah! I don't know what to say to that," said Sancho. "Do I feel like playing in England again? I don't know. It's the future. You never know what could happen, so we wait and see. I'm happy to be a part of Dortmund. Obviously I have got to say thank you to the (Dortmund) manager (Lucien Favre) for playing me, trusting and believing in me," he added.
