Dortmund captain and defender Hummels wants Bayern move

DORTMUND, Germany (AP) Borussia Dortmund captain and central defender Mats Hummels has asked to be released from his contract so that he can move to Bundesliga rival Bayern Munich next season.

Dortmund said on Thursday it was willing to let Hummels go for "an extremely valuable offer that would reflect the player's extraordinary worth."

The club added that Bayern had not made an offer yet. Hummels still has one year on his contract and no opt-out clause.
