Niklas Süle is reportedly unhappy with his current role at Borussia Dortmund, but is not considering a move away from the club in January.

With Mats Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck forming Borussia Dortmund's first-choice centre-back partnership this season, Niklas Süle has found playing time hard to come by. Edin Terzic's reluctance to rotate in central defence has meant that the Germany international has been limited to just 14 appearances across all competitions so far. And according to Sky Sport, he is definitely unhappy with his lack of minutes at the club.

The report adds that Süle's agent Volker Struth had a two-hour meeting with Sebastian Kehl recently to discuss the issue. BVB seemingly suggested that Süle simply needs to make a step up in his performances and set the tone as one of the leaders in the team.

The report adds that Süle is not considering a move away from Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window, but that could change if his situation does not improve in the coming months.

Niklas Süle joined Borussia Dortmund last year on a free transfer from Bayern Munich and has made a total of 55 appearances for the club. The 28 year old was appointed the club's third captain before the start of the current season, and is also one of the highest paid players at the club. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for Süle, who still has more than two years left on his current contract with BVB.
