Hummels returned to the starting line-up but concededed three goals as Dortmund were defeated 3-1 Saturday by Borussia Moenchengladbach.

The Dortmund defense lost its clean sheet after just 28 seconds when Gladbach's Oscar Wendt powerfully fired in a rebound. It was a terrible start on what would be a long afternoon for Dortmund and Hummels was probably the weakest link at the back. He did however fare better in attack where he produced two efforts on goal.

Hummels was left out of the DFB Pokal victory Tuesday over Hoffenheim because of a minor thigh injury, reports.

The defender picked up the injury in the previous game against Bayern Munich but the knock shouldn't rule him out for long. Expect to see him in the line-up next time out.

Hummels failed to keep a clean sheet Saturday as Dortmund lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich.

Despite making a game-high number of tackles (27), Hummels wasn't as dominant in defense as he usually is. He was often out-fought by the Bayern frontline and lacked aerial superiority. Hummels also spurned a late chance when he shot wide from relatively close range.

Hummels may be on his way out this summer after Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watske said that offers would be listened to, The Guardian reports.

This is the strongest indication yet that Hummels won't be at Dortmund next season. Past rumors have been largely dismissed a move for the defender but the Dortmund chief has now said that "the situation at Dortmund is like this: We’ve lost one major player each year but we don’t stop playing football. To be clear: Mats knows his contractual situation, he described it in that interview himself. The decision where Mats will play next season will only be taken by BVB.” Hummels himself has also recently talked about wanting to play abroad.

New rumors suggest that Hummels may be ready to leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season, reports the Daily Mail.

Hummels conceded two but looked solid throughout Saturday as Dortmund claimed a 3-2 win over Hannover.

Hummels barely set a foot wrong against Hannover and was the stand-out figure in defense. Despite the opposition scoring two, Hummels looked strong and seemed to be everywhere on the field. He also played the ball out from the back well and made more passes than anyone on the team.
