The Icelandic international has been a revelation in what has been an otherwise disappointing season for the Swans, and that has kicked off reports Dortmund could try and lure him away.

Dortmund could need a replacement for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, and reports suggested they could bid £10million for the Swans ace.

Such a figure would fall well below Swansea’s valuation, but Jenkins has shot down the reports in any case, and has insisted the Bundesliga side have not been in touch.

“I have had no contact from Dortmund – that’s news to me,” he said. “In the Premier League, you are always going to get this speculation if a player does well, and that’s not going to change. We are used to this sort of thing.”
