- Shinji Kagawa stays
There were some rumors about a possible transfer of Shinji Kagawa but (thankfully) it never happened. The Japanese fan favorite is as of now still a player of Borussia Dortmund and will remain with the black and yellows at least until January. Nevertheless it will be hard for Kagawa to get some game time, Favre did not nominate him to BVB’s matchday squad for both Bundesliga games. Looking at BVB’s lack of creativity against Hannover he could potentially help in that regard.
