Picking up an assist against Leicester City a week or so ago, Abdelhamid Sabiri has now played in Huddersfield Towns’s last three league games, and is slowly integrating David Wagner’s squad.
The 20-year-old, who arrived from FC Nuremberg late in the transfer window for just over £1m, has shown he is capable of holding his own in the Premier League, and has caught the eye of the Morocco national team.
In fact, the midfielder’s name was on Hervé Renard’s list for the upcoming World Cup qualifier against Gabon, but the Huddersfield starlet turned him down.
According to Lions de L’Atlas, Sabiri decided he would rather focus on his club for now, and is hoping he will be able to earn himself a call up for Germany’s U21 squad in the near future.
Born in Goulmima in Morocco, the Huddersfield starlet moved to Germany when he was three years old, and spent all of his footballing career there before earning his move to the north of England.
Prior to his Huddersfield transfer, Sabiri had only played nine games for Nuremberg, scoring five goals in the 2.Bundesliga.
