Brighton and Hove Albion striker Deniz Undav has decided to make himself available for the Germany National Team after a surprise phone call from Julian Nagelsmann.
That’s according to RTL Nieuws, who cover comments from the striker today after Stuttgart’s win over Borussia Dortmund.
Undav is currently on loan at Stuttgart from Brighton, having elected to leave Roberto de Zerbi’s side in the summer of regular playing time elsewhere.
That has reportedly put him on the radar of the German National Team, with new manager Julian Nagelsmann reportedly scouting around for fresh talent to introduce to his squad and Undav available.
Undav is one such player as he enjoys both German and Turkish citizenship but is yet to play for either nation.
And Nagelsmann has now been in touch with the Brighton striker, who revealed he was shocked the call came his way.
“If I get the chance I will definitely play for Germany,” he told reporters after the 2-0 cup win over Borussia Dortmund, which Nagelsmann attended.
“I couldn’t believe he called. It was a good conversation; we’ll see where it leads.”
