Kagawa has only appeared in four matches for Dortmund across all competitions this term, falling way down the pecking order under club boss Lucien Favre.
VOKES TO LEAVE BURNLEY?
Stoke City have opened talks with Burnley over a possible transfer for Sam Vokes, according to the Telegraph.

UNITED AGREE TERMS TO SELL FELLAINI
Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has agreed terms on a transfer to Chinese Super League club Shandong Luneng – according to BBC Sport.
