Ilkay Gündoğan has expressed his disappointment at the Borussia Dortmund fans reaction to news of his impending exit from the club.

The 24-year-old confirmed that he will be leaving Dortmund last week and the Bundesliga giants are keen to sell him before his contract expires in July 2016.

“I’d lie if I’d say that some reactions did not affect me. Friends tell you about it, even though you try not to read everything,” he told SID.

Gündoğan also stated that there is a chance he will be at Dortmund next season.

“That I do not prolong my contract does not necessarily mean that I am gone in the summer.” Gündoğan is quoted as saying by kicker

“I won’t force a transfer come hell or high water, but rather would be ready to stay at the club for one more season if that’s the best alternative for both sides.”
