Wolfsburg have denied making an agreement with Julian Draxler, after the winger revealed his desire to leave the club.
The 22-year-old stated that, when he joined the club from Schalke, he was told by Coach Hecking and Sporting Director Allofs that they would let him leave, if bigger clubs showed any interest in him.
The Germany international also stated he has informed Hecking of his wishes. But Wolfsburg insists he will not be sold.
“Wolfsburg wish to make it absolutely clear that at no time did those responsible at the club make either written nor oral commitments on the transfer of Julian Draxler within the current transfer period,” a statement read.
“This is reiterated by a contractual release clause agreed upon with Julian Draxler and his management, which does not come into effect until summer 2017.
“VfL Wolfsburg will not be selling Julian Draxler during the course of the current transfer period.
“In joint discussions with Julian Draxler, VfL Wolfsburg again made it clear that they would not be granting the player’s wish to make a move.
“We now consider any possible uncertainties to have been eradicated and that all parties can revert back to a professional and responsible collaboration for the good of VfL Wolfsburg and, in particular, for our fans.”
The former Schalke man, who represented Germany at Euro 2016, is contracted to Wolfsburg until 2020.
