Jadon Sancho responds when asked about £100m Tottenham, Liverpool rumour

The 18-year-old broke the mould for young English talent when turning down a contract offer reported to be in the region of £30,000 per week at Manchester City to broaden his horizons and seek the regular football he was never likely to find at the Etihad.

"I think he was fantastic when he came on", said the midfielder.

"Obviously there are a lot of young players in the squad looking to get their chance and keeping everyone on their toes". I can't just go down the road and see my friends. "I just couldn't stop smiling for the whole day".

Sancho is one of the most highly-rated youngsters in world football right now and is beginning to make a huge impression at Dortmund. "Obviously I have got to say thank you to the (Dortmund) manager (Lucien Favre) for playing me, trusting and believing in me", he added.

"Do I feel like playing in England again?"

Devers then made two great plays at third base, including a do-or-die play to nail Jose Altuve on the run at first base. Cora disagreed with a strike call that resulted in Andrew Benintendi stranding the bases loaded in the fifth inning.

Sancho left City for Germany in a £8 million deal but City were keen to ensure that they put themselves at the front of the queue should they wish to re-sign him in the future. However, as pointed out by a report in the Manchester Evening News, it's City that are his most likely destination should he return to the Premier League any time soon. His ability is clear for all to see as he performs tricks and dribbles with other young footballers, one of them being Arsenal's Reiss Nelson.

"That's what he tells me off the pitch, "you've just got to do your thing, that's why you're here - you've got to make everyone understand you're Jadon Sancho". Obviously the culture's different and the fans have so much passion for the game and obviously support me every week.

Sancho, 18, was selected in Gareth Southgate's squad for the UEFA Nations League games against Croatia and Spain, despite only making one Bundesliga start so far this season and having bypassed England's under-21s. In response, Sancho failed to turn up for training, eventually sealing his move to the Bundesliga weeks later. "I miss them a lot, but I want to do what's best for me and felt like moving to Germany was the best thing".

Croatia also suffered a hangover on the field against Spain last month to already leave Dalic more focused on Euro 2020 than another attempt at glory in the Nations League.

And Rams boss Frank Lampard has challenged the 19-year-old - on his first senior worldwide call-up - to eclipse his own England career.
