No fresh offers for Kiyotake
Nurnberg have received no fresh bids for Hiroshi Kiyotake and consider him to be part of their long-term plans.
The 23-year-old playmaker has attracted interest from Aston Villa, with the Premier League outfit reported to have already seen one offer knocked back.
It has been speculated that Paul Lambert is planning a second approach, with Kiyotake figuring prominently on his summer shopping list.
The Japan international impressed during his debut season in European football last term, settling quickly into Bundesliga life.
Nurnberg are reluctant to let him leave after just 12 months in Germany and have warned potential suitors that they have no intention of entering into negotiations.
Sporting director Martin Bader told Nurnberger Nachrichten on a player who is under contract until 2015: "It is a fact that we have not received any new requests.
"So we're not going to spend any time on it either.
"We've made it clear to the player that he is in our plans."
