USMNT star Pulisic says he has no plans of playing in the Premier League

U.S. men's national team star Christian Pulisic says he is perfectly content at Borussia Dortmund and doesn't plan on giving the Premier League a try. The 18-year-old American, one of the best young talents in the Bundesliga and the USMNT's best player, has been linked with clubs in England like Liverpool. But back in his hometown of Hershey, Pennsylvania, he told Penn Live that England isn't on his mind. 

"Nah, I mean when I was little I wanted to play in the Premier League but now that I'm in the Bundesliga, I'm not planning on a move because that's what I want to do," Pulisic said. "I'm really happy there and I'm just kind of going with the flow and I'm happy with it."

That won't stop offers from coming in, but it's nice to see a young player seem so committed to the club that has given him so much. He's played in big-time matches for BVB, won the German Cup this year and has become a fan favorite. It doesn't seem like a move in the next couple years is likely, and his words will reassure fans of that. 

He's also in a great situation at Dortmund. It's one of the best clubs in the world at developing young, raw talent. And if his progression continues, he could at some point be one of the most sought after midfielders in the league.
