Bayer Leverkusen have been linked with a move for Shakhtar Donetsk’s Mykhaylo Mudryk, and the 21-year-old is eager to join ‘Die Werkself’.

“I am a Shakhtar player, but if the club accept Bayer’s offer, that would be great. I have decided for myself that this is the only club I want to move to,” Mudryk told Ukrainian publication SportArena.

The 21-year-old went on to rule out a switch to Brentford City, with whom he has also been linked.

“With all due respect, I will definitely not go to Brentford. It is a mid-table Premier League club that don’t play European football, and for me the most important thing is to play in the Champions League. We thanked Brentford for the offer, but we withdrew from negotiations a long time ago,” Mudryk underlined.

The winger has scored two goals and provided nine assists in 19 games for Shakhtar this season.
