Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Jonas Boldt says that teenage talent Kai Havertz will be staying at the club despite reported interest from Bayern Munich.

Havertz is considered one of the best young players in the Bundesliga and made his full Germany debut in a 3-0 friendly win against Russia this week.

Bayern has been linked with the 19-year-old as it aims to add midfield depth, with experienced options like Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery heading towards the end of their careers.

And, Havertz's Germany teammate Joshua Kimmich added to the speculation by saying: "I cannot buy him, but Kai Havertz is a player who would suit us well."

Havertz has started all 11 games for Leverkusen in the Bundesliga this season, scoring three goals with his side in the bottom half of the table.

And, Boldt feels Havertz will be staying with the club for the foreseeable future despite Bayern being linked with a move for the teenager.

"There is no reason to be uneasy. His future lies in Leverkusen, where Kai has an environment where he can excellently develop," he told Sport1.

"It's nice to see the boy progressing from month to month, and of course, we're pleased that he has done so well on his [full] national debut, confirming our path in Leverkusen. Club, player and everyone has agreed that Leverkusen is the right club, so logically there were no requests."
