Wolfsburg manager Felix Magath has dismissed reports that Germany international Sascha Riether could leave the club.

The 28-year-old has one year left on his contract at Volkswagen Arena and he is rumoured to be considering his options.

But Magath has no plans to sell the midfielder, who has also acted as the club's captain in the past.

The Wolfsburg boss told his club's official website: "Sascha Riether is a player under contract at Wolfsburg and he has not yet come to me with regard to a transfer request.

"He did not tell me that he wants to move on, so I am absolutely counting on his services for the new season."

Magath added: "But we are in professional football, moves and transfers are usual. If any player feels he would do better in moving on, I would not desperately want to keep him."
