The future of English football is certainly looking promising with a plethora of stars such as Trent Alexander-Arnold and Marcus Rashford being permanent fixtures for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively.

After the success of Gareth Southgate's England side in Russia, it seems the next generation of stars are chomping at the bit to be part of a national team filled with promise and optimism.

One league that seems to be liking what they see from England's younger players is the Bundesliga in Germany.

Reiss Nelson (Hoffenheim) and Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund) have moved to Germany - Nelson on a loan deal and Sancho on a permanent - and both thrived, getting regular game time.

Another promising youngster brimming with potential is Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, the 18-year-old has attracted the most successful team in German history, Bayern Munich, with the club making a £35 million bid.

A move of such a magnitude is a very big decision for an 18-year-old to make and no one would blame Hudson-Odoi if he stayed put in London even if it was solely the fact that the surroundings are familiar.

However, one player that, as previously mentioned, did take the risk and is currently reaping the rewards.

That man is Jadon Sancho and he is trying to persuade his friend Hudson-Odoi to follow suit.


"I'm not sure [what he will do]." Sancho told the Daily Mail.

"Everyone has different pathways. Me and Callum are close friends. I know what he's all about.

"He's the next one I would say. He's very good and talented, fast, good dribbling skills. And I've told him the Bundesliga is a nice league. I just told him to do whatever is best for him."

Sancho has also spread the word of his love for the Bundesliga with some other team-mates.

"I've told them [his former England youth team-mates] that this is a league that is keen to express the youth," he added.

"Every young player in England wants to do well and just wants to help their families, be someone that their family can be remembered for.

"The World Cup showed everyone in England that young players are coming through and working hard to try to get a chance. My chance was to come out to Germany."

With Hudson-Odoi potentially the third high profile English signing in the Bundesliga, it looks like the reluctance to move overseas to find first-team football for British players could be a thing of the past.
