Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc insisted no decision had been made on Mario Gotze’s future at the Bundesliga club.
Gotze, 27, is coming out of contract at the end of the season and has been linked with a move away.
“That has not yet been decided,” he told Ruhr Nachrichten.
“It is of course also the case with him that he would like to have more minutes. We are talking to Mario.
“I spoke to his father before Christmas. I spoke to him again in Marbella. We will surely get together in the spring and then make a final decision.”
He has made just five Bundesliga starts this campaign.
