Chicago Fire head coach Frank Klopas says there is nothing to report regarding striker Sherjill MacDonald.

The 28-year old Dutchman continues to be linked with a departure from the Fire and was left out of the weekend's 1-1 draw with Houston Dynamo, prompting further speculation.

But Klopas revealed that the Fire's Designated Player, formerly of Anderlecht and West Bromwich Albion, is not heading for the Toyota Park exit door.

"There's nothing right now," Klopas said.

"It comes down to in training here we have to make decisions with guys and competition is good with the team and it's healthy and the guys know that.

"There's no issue with Mac. If something were to happen, it would be great, but as long as he's here, he's giving everything he has."
