​Bayern Munich defender Boateng rules out January transfer

Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has rejected the chance of leaving in January.

The centre-back, who has been linked with Manchester United in the past, has struggled for both form and fitness in recent years.

And he has only started 11 of 17 possible Bundesliga games.

But he is not on his way out of the club just yet. He wants to prove his quality and get back his regular spot in the starting lineup.

"A change this winter is out of the question for me," Boateng said at a training camp in Doha.

"It was a difficult year for me," he went on to say to reporters.

"I fell short of my expectations and I'm not happy with that."
