Borussia Dortmund defender Felipe Santana has dismissed speculation he will leave the Bundesliga club during this month's transfer window.

The Brazilian, who is currently sidelined with an ankle ligament injury, has found first-team action limited at Dortmund this season due to the presence of preferred centre-back pairing Neven Subotic and Mats Hummels.

Rumours have surfaced linking the 26-year-old with a move away from Signal Iduna Park, with German rivals Hoffenheim thought to be interested.

But Santana, who is contracted until June 2014, says he is going nowhere this month.

He told Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung: "I am not quitting Borussia Dortmund. That is absolutely not an issue for me at this point in time.

"I am actually not fit and I definitely have to consider my performances as much as I need to keep in mind the general situation I am in.

"Basically I am very cool on my future."
