Borussia Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke has again discussed the prospect of Henrikh Mkhitaryan returning in January.
The Armenian international is being linked with Borussia after a difficult first four months at Manchester United.
However, Watzke, speaking at a local function on Monday, ruled out the prospect.
“This option is completely excluded,” he said.
Also, just this week the 27-year-old midfielder, speaking with the Armenian FA, said, that he wanted to prove himself at Man Utd.
