Borussia Dortmund II defender Herbert Bockhorn has been linked with a move to join up with former boss Jan Siewert at Huddersfield Town.
The Ugandan-born right back has made 18 appearances in the Regionalliga West for Dortmund’s second team, scoring two goals and claiming two assists.
The 24 year-old joined Dortmund from SC Weidenbrück in 2016, but has yet to make a competitive appearance for the first team. Bockhorn’s youth career saw him progress from amateur side TSV Meldorf before growing through the youth ranks at Werder Bremen.
Bockhorn currently hold German citizenship but has attracted the attention of the Ugandan national side, and he has been included in the country’s provisional 46-man squad for the African Cup of Nations Qualifier against Tanzania.
“We are in the process of frantically securing for him dual citizenship because he currently holds Germany citizenship. The coach wants him to play the game against Tanzania on 24th March in Dar es Salaam,” said Sebastian Desabre, coach of the Ugandan national side.
The Terrier's are on the brink of relegation to the Championship as they sit bottom of the Premier League, 13 points from safety. Siewert will no doubt be looking ahead to building a squad ready for second tier football should they fail to stay up.
