With African star and Real Madrid loanee Achraf Hakimi recently revealing his intention to return to Zinedine Zidane's team earlier than expected, Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund have weighed in on the matter.

Morocco international Hakimi last week made public his desire for an early return to parent club Los Blancos midway through his two-year loan spell with BVB.

The 20-year-old has cemented his place in Lucien Favre's starting XI, but the September 2018 Bundesliga Rookie Award winner saw his progress curtailed when he suffered a broken metatarsal against Wolfsburg in March.

However, despite Hakimi being keen on a return to Madrid, Dortmund's sporting director Michael Zorc has ruled out the possibility of the defender reuniting with Zidane at Real at the end of the current campaign.

"Hakimi will not return to Real Madid this summer, I can rule that out," he told Football Espana.

"We spoke with his agent last week and, yes, I read what the players told the media, but he will stay at Dortmund and we all know this.

"He is coming back to Dortmund this week to support the team and feel part of the club, and will return to us following the Africa Cup of Nations this summer."

Hakimi has made 28 appearances in all competitions for BVB so far this season, finding the back of the net on three occasions and registering seven assists.
