Chelsea and Spurs' hopes of signing Hummels dashed by Bayern Munich chief

BAYERN MUNICH have denied Mats Hummels will leave next month amid speculation his agent is in talks with Chelsea and Tottenham.
The German international is out of favour under new manager Niko Kovac with reports claiming he wants out of the club.
Bild said his agent, Marc Kosicke, travelled to London recently to discuss a switch to the Premier League giants.
However, the 30-year-old is going nowhere after Bayern chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge denied they were looking to sell the centre-half.
He said: “We had a conversation with Mats a few days ago and he will play for Bayern Munich in the second half of the season.”
And the Bundesliga side’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic also insisted talks went well with the defender.
He added: “We talked to Mats, it was a good conversation.
“Mats feels very well in Munich, and if a player does not always play, it's clear that there are discussions.
“Mats wanted to talk to us. We explained our point of view to him and he explained his point of view.
“I think that we came to a common denominator.”
Bayern managed to close the gap on leaders Dortmund to six points this week after securing a 1-0 win at RB Leipzig.
Hummels, who has two years remaining on his deal, actually started for the reigning champs and the clean sheet will have only helped his cause to get his spot.
Bayern face Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday in their final match of 2018 before the winter break.
