Schalke general manager Horst Heldt has insisted there will be no questions about Julian Draxler during the January transfer window.

The 20-year-old Germany international was strongly linked with a summer move to England, but he shunned any advances due to the fact he wants to concentrate on making it to the World Cup finals.

Draxler has enjoyed a good start to the new season, which has again led to speculaiton that he could be the subject of an offer in January.

But Heldt insists that will not be an option.

"Julian Draxler will be at our club this season, that is for sure," he told kicker-Sportmagazin.

"There will be no fuss regarding him during the January window as he is committed to our club."

Julian Draxler added: "I am focussed on playing well for Schalke 04. All the rest is something the general manager will be worried with!"

Draxler has over four-years left on his current deal and has a buy-out in excess of £40million.
