American teenage sensation Christian Pulisic will stick it out at Borussia Dortmund for the next few months. According to multiple sources that include Grant Wahl and ESPNFC, the U.S. international will not be loaned out by the Bundesliga club during the summer transfer window.

While this isn’t completely shocking considering the 17-year-old’s father said as much a few weeks ago, it is confirmation that he’s willing to fight for his spot, at least until the January transfer window.

Liverpool might have complicated his decision after his father’s comments when they submitted a bid for reportedly around 12 million euros.

Despite Pulisic only playing in half of a season in professional soccer, Dortmund declined the offer and put a ‘not for sale’ sign in front of their prized prospect.

Now it’s just a matter of what kind of playing time the youngster can squeeze out this season. The club added four really good (and in some cases proven) attacking players to contend for minutes.

If Pulisic remains unhappy with his minutes, we could see a different transfer tale in January.

This transfer window has already proven that Pulisic is the most expensive and valuable American soccer player ever. Now it’s just a matter of when and if he gets sold in the future, how much could he possibly be worth?
