The Germany international had been linked with moves to both Manchester United and FC Barcelona this summer with the Red Devils having a £20m bid rejected by Dortmund.

Despite all of the interest in his signature, the 25-year-old remains committed to staying with the German side and is adamant that his contact, which has no release clause in it, will be seen out until it expires in 2017.

“I wanted to set an example with the extension I signed and it will run for five years until 2017,” Hummels was quoted by the Daily Express.

The highly rated centre back also revealed that he could have stayed at old club Bayern Munich had they treated him better.

“If Bayern had not bought Breno in 2007 for €12million [£9.6m], I would not have left, but that’s the way football is sometimes,” Hummels added.

“I was practically forced towards happiness. It was the best thing that could have happened to me.”

Hummels enhanced his reputation during the 2014 World Cup by being a strong, powerful presence at the heart of Germany’s winning defence.
