Dortmund are now being forced to decide on his future, with the choice of either extending his current deal or risk losing him for a cut-price fee due to his situation.

Club director of sport Michael Zorc admitted that the Germany international is still in shock following his injury and is yet to make a decision.

“Ilkay is currently still in shock. How things go with him, we will have to wait and see,” he is quoted by The Sun.

The midfielder only has one year left before his contract expires, but is unsure what to do after he has now been ruled out of the upcoming EUROs with his national team.

Gundogan has already featured 40 times in all competitions for his side this term, so far scoring three goals while providing another seven assists.
