Chelsea defender Ian Maatsen said he has no idea if he has a future at Stamford Bridge after helping Borussia Dortmund reach the Champions League final during his six-month loan spell at the Bundesliga club.

Maatsen, 22, has been a key figure in Dortmund's surprise run to Saturday's Wembley final against Real Madrid having played every minute of Edin Terzic's team's six games in the Champions League knockout stage.

The Netherlands under-21 international also scored in the 4-2 quarterfinal second-leg win against Atlético Madrid at Signal Iduna Park.

Dortmund are keen to keep Maatsen beyond the end of his loan deal, either with another loan or permanent transfer, but sources have said they are unlikely to meet Chelsea's £35 million ($44.7m) valuation of the player.

But having signed a two-year contract extension at Chelsea in January before moving to Dortmund, Maatsen said he is still waiting for the Premier League club to give him an indication of whether he has a future at Stamford Bridge.

"In recent weeks? No. No, not yet," Maatsen said when asked if he has had any contact with Chelsea. "I think I still have a contract and after the summer we are going to decide where my future is going to be.

"For now, I am just focusing on this game [the Champions League final] and obviously what's coming next.

"No [I have nothing to prove to Chelsea], I just have to do something to prove to myself. I came here to prove myself that I can play on the highest level and that's what I'm doing now."

Aside from his ever-present appearance record in the Champions League in Dortmund's wins against PSV Eindhoven, Atlético and Paris Saint-Germain, Maatsen has also made 16 appearances in the Bundesliga for Terzic's team.

Having previously been loaned by Chelsea to Charlton Athletic, Coventry and Burnley, Maatsen said that his move to Dortmund has paid off because of their readiness to hand young players the chance to prove themselves.

"I think they just give young people opportunity," he said. "Players like me, I just came here from the start and [played] straight through.

"We play many games and also the Champions League, they give us the chance to shine and I'm very grateful for that.

"When I came here, I felt like I've been playing with the guys for many years. I had such a good feeling to come here and felt very welcome, and me and the fans have also had a great connection."

Maatsen's teammate Mats Hummels, meanwhile, has admitted he is bitter over his exclusion from Germany's provisional squad for Euro 2024 but understands Julian Nagelsmann's decision.

"I can understand the idea that a group has been growing since March," Hummels told Bild Sport in an interview published on Tuesday.

"It's bitter for me as an individual because I'm currently one of the five best defenders in Germany. I have the self-confidence to say that."

Asked about the reasons behind his omission, Hummels said: "If I understood him [Nagelsmann] correctly, It was more about age-related issues like fitness.

"If I'd had a phase like the one I had recently before the nomination in March [for the friendly fixtures], maybe I would have been called up -- for the European Championship squad now as well."
