Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc insists management still believe in Jadon Sancho.
Sancho has fallen out with Zorc and coach Lucien Favre over breaches of discipline, but management insist they still see a future with the England international.
Zoric told Kicker: "That is by no means the plan (that Sancho will be sold in January).
"We continue to have him in our plans. He is a very important player and I see no scenario where he leaves us."
Sancho's deal with Dortmund runs to 2022.
