Bayern Munich target Kai Havertz has ruled out a move away from Bayer Leverkusen for at least another year.
The 20-year-old attacking midfielder enjoyed an impressive campaign with Leverkusen last season and has been linked with a €90million switch to Bavaria.
Havertz has been with Leverkusen since the age of 11 and is in no rush to move now, although he admitted he may be interested in a transfer in the future.
"For me, it has long been clear that I will spend the next season in Leverkusen, without any ifs and buts," he told Suddeutsche Zeitung.
"I feel very well in Leverkusen and I see a period here in which I can develop very well.
"At some point, I will take the next step. If it comes to that, then no one will be angry with me here. You just want to achieve the most possible in your career."
A number of top clubs have been alerted to Havertz's talents after a season in which the tall playmaker scored 17 Bundesliga goals.
Leverkusen managing director Rudi Voller previously told any interested suitors to forget about bidding for the Germany international, who is under contract at BayArena until 2022.
"It's logical for clubs to come close, but there was nothing to be agreed and not too much to talk about," Havertz said. "For the coming season, I can definitely say that Leverkusen is the right place for me."
